1Now in the West the slender moon lies low,
3Clearing the earth with even pace and slow,
5In that soft infinite darkness overhead
6Hang jewel-wise upon a silver thread.
7And all the lonelier stars that have their place,
8Calm lamps within the distant southern sky,
9And planet-dust upon the edge of space,
10Look down upon the fretful world, and I
11Look up to outer vastness unafraid
12And see the stars which sang when earth was made.
