To Stella
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Thou wert the morning star among the living,
          Ere thy fair light had fled;-
Now, having died, thou art as Hesperus, giving
          New splendour to the dead.

  • The original included this prefatory line: "From the Greek of Plato"
  • The title is here "To Stella {Shelley) to avoid confusion with Jonathan Swift's To Stella.
