Delphic Kansas

1853-1938

Plato's Imperishable Epigram
(Englished in two versions)
 
I

Thou gazest on the stars !
        Would I might be,
        O star of mine,
                The skies
        With myriad eyes,
        To gaze on thee.
 
II
 
Thou gazest on the stars,
                My star!
        Would I might be,
                The skies
        With many eyes
        To look on thee.
