George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
9. Night
 
 
HEART-HIDDEN from the outer things I rose;
The spirit woke anew in nightly birth
Unto the vastness where forever glows
    The star-soul of the earth.
 
There all alone in primal ecstasy,        5
Within her depths where revels never tire,
The olden Beauty shines: each thought of me
    Is veined through with its fire.
 
And all my thoughts are throngs of living souls;
They breathe in me, heart unto heart allied;        10
Their joy undimmed, though when the morning tolls
    The planets may divide.
