The Evening Star

A poem by Walter Savage Landor

Smiles soon abate; the boisterous throes
Of anger long burst forth;
Inconstantly the south-wind blows,
But steadily the north.

Thy star, O Venus! often changes
Its radiant seat above,
The chilling pole-star never ranges,
'Tis thus with Hate and Love.
