"Like Stars in Vast Space"

"To see me going drably about my business is not to see me at all--

the flame I keep burning within.

It is the same with you.

Like stars in vast space, each in its own orbit,

 we are millions of light-years apart.

We look at each other through dim telescopes,

weigh each other in confused logarithms, 

test each other in cold spectra--

and I burning hot with my own heat, and you with yours."

David Grayson in Great Possessions
