And the lap of thy watery bars
Though space were choked with globes
And the night were blind with stars!

That draw and cling, and shape a star, —

We picture this, our tiny Earth,
Amid that wilderness of stars!

It hath its place.

As he had heard it die,
Thro' the spaces of his window-bars,
By the dawn-light he just could trace,
Where it lay along upon its face,
As life did never lie!...
