Star and Soul

Star and Soul.

A star circled on its sphere
Unseen, for the sun was on high,
And men looked up, and they said,
“There is not a star in the sky.”
But darkness came, flinging its curtain afar,
And behold in the heavens a luminous star!

A beautiful soul upon earth
Was dulled by the shine of its joys,
Obscured by the radiance of mirth
And his by the world and its toys.
But sorrow came, flinging its blackness afar,
And the beautiful soul shone out like a star.

-anon.
