Original text and translations
Thine eyes still shined for me,
Though far I lonely roved the land or sea:
As I behold yon evening star,
Which yet beholds not me.
This morn I climbed the misty hill,
And roamed the pastures through;
How danced thy form before my path
Amidst the deep-eyed dew!
When the redbird spread his sable wing,
And showed his side of flame;
When the rosebud ripened to the rose,
In both I read thy name.
Lyrics: Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), Thine eyes still shined, from "Poems", published 1847.
