Sonnet 494

If I could light a star to mark your name
It would shine brighter than all stars before
And your pure essence boast celestial fame,
A beacon bright to herald Heaven’s door.
There you shall gleam more proud than Vega’s flame,
So will Arcturus pale by rayed compare;
Ired Sirius to Titan shall complain
While Canopus and Rigil shield despair.
So will your aura challenge yet the Moon
That her pocked countenance seek veiling cloud
While astral beings in their wonder swoon;
Telluric princess by Astraeus crowned.
There you shall reign in luminous delight:
A peerless beauty so to grace the night.
