1314. Stella
 
By Charles Henry Crandall
 
 
HOME from the observatory,
  Now I take her on my knee,
And I tell her all the glory
  That the lenses showed to me.
Pleased, she listens to my story,        5
  Earnest look then turneth she
 
Where the stars are softly blinking
  In the blue of summer skies.
Ah! she sees beyond my thinking,
  Even into Paradise!        10
Very humbly I am drinking
  What o’erfloweth from her eyes.
