‘The Reverie of Space’ By Julio Toro San Martin The Society December 9, 2013 Beauty, Poetry In darkness, in the mantling of the night, When Earth is calm, and troubling noises cease, I turn with wonder-looking eyes, to please My dulled senses, from the day’s untranquil sight: And first gaze upon heavens lesser light, The moon, who’s beams far into space, she shines; Next to the farther planets, who’s bright lines I trace in a trajectory of might; And over all holds the dominion of the stars, Numberless, in endless infinities of space, Old, perhaps their very being is a place, Untouched, of which we may not breach the bars; And farther still lie worlds on worlds to chase, And unknown caverns of eternity to trace!
