‘Move eastward, happy earth, and leave’

         
      Move eastward, happy earth, and leave
         Yon orange sunset waning slow:
      From fringes of the faded eve,
         O, happy planet, eastward go;
      Till over thy dark shoulder glow
         Thy silver sister-world, and rise
         To glass herself in dewy eyes
      That watch me from the glen below.

      Ah, bear me with thee, smoothly borne,
         Dip forward under starry light,
      And move me to my marriage-morn,
         And round again to happy night.
