Fragment - I looked upon the twilight Star

Literary Gazette, 19th April 1823, Page 251



I looked upon the twilight Star,
    And young blue eyes shone by my side,
And, with a lover's fondness, wished
    It were a home for my sweet Bride!

Were my words sin, that I should have
    To weep upon my fatal prayer?
My seat is by Ianthe's grave—
    That twilight Star is shining there! [1]
