View Full Version : Hesperus

Hesperus shines
Low on the eastern wave,
Off toward the Asian shore;

Over faint lines
Whose grays and purples pave
Where seas night-calmed adore.

Fair vesper fire,
Fairest of stars, the light
Benign of secret bliss

Star of desire,
Bringing to me with night
Dreams and my Phaon's kiss.
