OH, to lie on the earth now, with eyes to the ground,
And to see nothing—nothing,
While the world goes jangling round. ...

Oh, to lie in the leaves now, alone with my pain,
And to feel nothing—nothing,
But the soft, cool drops of the rain. ...

Oh, to lie on the hills now, in the deep of the snow,
And to hear nothing—nothing,
While the day shrieks on below. ...

Oh, to lie on the wind now, soaring afar,
And to know nothing—nothing,
But the light of a changeless star. ...
