Like Jove's great eagle, who on giant wings
Bore the Greek Ganymede unto the skies,
Thus on thy winged words, oh let me rise
Unto the ether of perennial things.

Till my whole soul on her aerial flight
Staggers, and reels, and pants, divinely drunk,
And in the infinite of Spirit sunk,
Swallowed and lost my life in vast whirlpools of light.
