First Line: I think I have never been so exalted
Last Line: Shall not endure for ever.
Subject(s): Flowers


I think I have never been so exalted
As I am now by you,
O frost bitten blossoms,
That are unfolding your wings
From out the envious black branches.

Bloom quickly and make much of the sunshine.
The twigs conspire against you!
Hear them!
They hold you from behind!

You shall not take wing
Except wing by wing, brokenly,
And yet --
Even they
Shall not endure for ever.
