I walked upon a lonely street
With steps the tired know,
When soft upon my sleeve there fell
A pointed flake of snow.
In solitary loveliness
The perfect crystal lay . . .
A star that knew a moment's form,
Then blurred and slipped away.
But beauty thronged the lonely place;
My feet were heaven-shod . . .
Because I held, just for a breath,
A little star from God.
And, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
