George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
4. The Unknown God
 
 
FAR up the dim twilight fluttered
  Moth-wings of vapour and flame:
The lights danced over the mountains,
  Star after star they came.
 
The lights grew thicker unheeded,        5
  For silent and still were we;
Our hearts were drunk with a beauty
  Our eyes could never see.
