The Crown of Darkness by Thomas Westwood

Lo, Darkness, digging in the mine o’ the night,
Doth bring forth star by star, which, having shapen
Into the semblance of a mighty crown,
He circles, with its glory, the veiled brow
Of the universal space.

From: Westwood, Beads From a Rosary, 1843, Samuel Clarke: London, p. 77.
