Byron: “Sun of the Sleepless!”

nordlys8-nb_harstad

SUN OF THE SLEEPLESS!

Sun of the sleepless! melancholy star!
Whose tearful beam glows tremulously far,
That show`st the darkness thou canst not dispel,
How like art thou to joy remember`d well!

So gleams the past, the light of other days,
Which shines, but warms not with its powerless rays;
A night-beam Sorrow watcheth to behold,
Distinct but distant — clear — but, oh how cold!

Lord George Gordon Byron (b. 22 January 1788 )
