Poems.
VI. Wind and Stars
By Isa (Craig) Knox (1831–1903)
 
THE STARS are shining fixt and bright,
I stand upon the windy height,
Alone with sorrow and the night.
 
O stars so high, from earth apart,
Ye are the hopes that stirred my heart;        5
O wind, its beating wings thou art.
 
The wind may rave, the starry spheres
Unheeding shine, nor moved by fears
Nor shaken into trembling tears.
 
O hush, wild heart, regarded not,        10
Sink to the level of thy lot,
In pity sink, and be forgot.
