„Ah, immortality so blind,
To dream all things with it conjoined
Must follow it from star to star
And share with it immortal years.
The memory, yearning, grief, and tears,
Fall from it and it goes afar.“

—  George William Russell, By Still Waters (1906)

„Star of my heart, I follow from afar.“

—  Vachel Lindsay American poet 1879 - 1931
Star Of My Heart (1913), Context: Star of my heart, I follow from afar. Sweet Love on high, lead on where shepherds are, Where Time is not, and only dreamers are. Star from of old, the Magi-Kings are dead And a foolish Saxon seeks the manger-bed. O lead me to Jehovah's child Across this dreamland lone and wild, Then will I speak this prayer unsaid, And kiss his little haloed head— "My star and I, we love thee, little child."

„I shine afar, till men may not divine
Whether it is the stars or the beloved
They follow with wrapt spirit.“

—  George William Russell Irish writer, editor, critic, poet, and artistic painter 1867 - 1935
By Still Waters (1906), Context: I am the tender voice calling 'Away,' Whispering between the beatings of the heart, And inaccessible in dewy eyes I dwell, and all unkissed on lovely lips, Lingering between white breasts inviolate, And fleeting ever from the passionate touch, I shine afar, till men may not divine Whether it is the stars or the beloved They follow with wrapt spirit.
