49 LXXXVIII. Ye stars ! which are the poetry of heaven ! If in your bright leaves we would read the fate Of men and empires, — ^'tis to be forgiven. That in our aspirations to be great, Our destinies o'erleap their mortal state. And claim a kindred with you ; for ye are A beauty and a mystery, and create In us such love and reverence from afar, That fortune, fame, power, Ufe, have named themselves a star. LXXXIX. All heaven and earth are still — though not in sleep, But breathless, as we grow w...hen feeling most ; And silent, as we stand in thoughts too deep : — AU heaven and earth are still : From the high host Of stars, to the luU'd lake and mountain-coast. All is concentered in a life intense. Where not a beam, nor air, nor leaf is lost, But hath a part of being, and a sense Of that which is of all Creator and defence. 50 CHILDE HAROLD'S . Canto III. Xc. Then stirs the feehng infinite, so felt In solitude, where we are least alone ; A truth, which through our being then doth melt And purifies from self: it is a tone, The soul and source of music, which makes known Eternal harmony, and sheds a charm.
