Dodge, M. M. (n.d.). The Stars. Retrieved from


Excerpt: THEY wait all day unseen by us, unfelt; // Patient they bide behind the day's full glare; // And we who watched the dawn when they were there, // Thought we had seen them in the daylight melt, // While the slow sun upon the earthlink knelt. // Because the teeming sky seemed void and bare, // When we explored it through the dazzled air, // We had no thought that there all day they dwelt. // Yet were they over us, alive and true. // In the vast shades far up above the blue, - // The brooding shades beyond our daylight ken - // Serene and patient in their conscious light // Ready to sparkle for our joy again, - // The eternal jewels of the short-lived night.
