by Sara Teasdale (1884 - 1933)

There will be stars
Language: English 
There will be stars over the place forever;
Though the house we loved and the street we loved are lost,
Every time the earth circles her orbit
On the night the autumn equinox is crossed,
Two stars we knew, poised on the peak of midnight
Will reach their zenith; stillness will be deep;
There will be stars over the place forever,
There will be stars forever, while we sleep.

Confirmed with Sara Teasdale, Dark of The Moon, New York, The Macmillan Company, 1926, page 21.
