So sinks the daystar in the ocean bed, And yet anon repairs his drooping head, And tricks his beams, and with new-spangled ore Flames in the forehead of the morning sky. --Milton.



Day-star \Day"-star`\ (-st[aum]r`), n.

1. The morning star; the star which ushers in the day.

2. The sun, as the orb of day. [Poetic]
