Poem by Emma Lazarus


Song


            Venus.

Frosty lies the winter-landscape,
  In the twilight golden-green.
Down the Park's deserted alleys,
  Naked elms stand stark and lean.

Dumb the murmur of the fountain,
  Birds have flown from lawn and hill.
But while yonder star's ascendant,
  Love triumphal reigneth still.

See the keen flame throb and tremble,
  Brightening in the darkening night,
Breathing like a thing of passion,
  In the sky's smooth chrysolite.

Not beneath the moon, oh lover,
  Thou shalt gain thy heart's desire.
Speak to-night!  The gods are with thee
  Burning with a kindred fire.
