Two Impatience

All stars, that when broke out in garrulous joy,
While infinite lives watched longing, in their ways
That only they and Nameless could employ,
Made two had met should share forever days,
That so, despite what shadows might englaze
Or bring between, or distractions deploy,
Their purpose passioned further, and to join
Was all the necessary, from their rays
Impatiently await each others gaze.
