Poem by Samuel Rogers

Written at Midnight

IF Day reveals such wonders by her Light,
What by her Darkness cannot Night reveal?
For at her bidding, when She mounts her throne
The Heavens unfold, and from the depths of Space
Sun beyond Sun, as when called forth they came,
Each with the worlds that round him rolled rejoicing,
Sun beyond Sun in numbers numberless
Shine with a radiance that is all their own!

Samuel Rogers
