Subject(s): Freedom; Thought; Liberty; Thinking

I BEAR a joy, a lofty joy,
Within my heart, oft aching;
No fear doth ever it alloy,
When thoughts free flight are taking.

They flutter like the birds, while swings
Their flight throughout earth gleaming,
And bear upon their dainty wings
The sweetest of all dreaming.

They mock at doors and bars and bolts,
And all the blows Fate looses;
My merry little choir of thoughts
Can love whate'er it chooses.

And though my feet through life are led
Down poverty's bare pathway,
My merry band of thoughts will tread
The street of highest beauty.
