Ah! When I am a cloud-- a pliant, floating cloud--I
will haunt the Sun-God for some eternal ray of Beauty.
I will wind my soft arms around the wheels of his
blazing chariot, till he robes me in gorgeous trains of gold!

I will sing to the stars till they crown me with their
richest jewels!
I will plead to the angels for the whitest, broadest wings
that ever walled their glorious heights around a dying
soul!
Then I will flaunt my light down the steep grooves of
space into this dark, old world, until Eyes of Love will
brighten for me!
