The Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus
William Cullen Bryant
Where two bright planets in the twilight meet,
upon the saffron heaven,
the imperial star of Jove,
and she that from her radiant urn,
pours forth the light of love,
let me believe, awhile,
that they are met for the ends of good.
Lo! they brighten as we gaze, and shake out softer fires,
the great Earth feels, the gladness and the quiet of the time.
