Star Garden

Inscription at the Star Garden of the Dumbarton Oaks Gardens

View of the Star Garden

O Thou Maker Of The Whele That Bereth The Sterres
And Tornest The Hevene With A Ravisshing Sweigh

Set in lead letters around the pavement of the Star Garden, this Middle English inscription is a partial quotation from Chaucer's translation of Boethius's work The Consolations of Philosophy.
