Poem by William Watson


Love's Astrology


I know not if they erred
   Who thought to see
The tale of all the times to be,
   Star-character'd;
 I know not, neither care,
 If fools or knaves they were.

 But this I know: last night
   On me there shone
Two stars that made all stars look wan
   And shamèd quite,
 Wherefrom the soul of me
 Divined her destiny.



William Watson
