Here you will find the Poem A Love Fancy of poet Charles Harpur

A Love Fancy

Night was new-throned in heaven, and we did rove 
 Together in the cool and shadowless haze 
 That thickened round, at the wild stars to gaze 
Ere yet the moon?s red rim had showed above 
The pine-trees. For in both our souls did move 
 The same fond lover-fancy,?that their rays 
 Were richer for all those who from the ways 
Of man?s long past had looked at them in love; 
And when our glances through their midst did run 
 From orb to orb of all that seemed most fair, 
To fix at last with mutual heed on one 
 That gloried in the West beyond compare, 
It seemed to us that when the day was done, 
 The spirit of our joy was mansioned there
