Tho' I've no 'scope to witness distant spheres
Nor fortune, bribing way to travel space,
Yet I believe to know what there appears
As if there stars have glow for mine to trace.
That knowledge I, cannot foretell our fate
Nor read the astrological of news
That find in stars for who's each perfect mate
Or veer from storm by craft or clever ruse,
Instead I've gathered; space is best to bide;
When greater distance travelled, greatest thrill
And brighter sparkle; glows the better guide
With sight that has astronomers no skill:
But how I view these farthest, wondrous skies?
Began when love; enthralled me deep in eyes!
