ASPIRATIONS: 12, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Creature of moods and changes manifold
Last Line: Soul, like a star, wilt thou pursue thy way?
Alternate Author Name(s): Lake, Claude
Subject(s): Grief; God; Conduct Of Life; Sorrow; Sadness


Creature of moods and changes manifold:
Mutable as the film of fleeting cloud;
Transfused now with heaven's purest gold,
And now the lightning's dread and gloomy shroud;

Dissolved, with keen bliss, in the blue sky;
'Mid storms of tears weeping thyself away;
When, when, immovable, and calm and high, --
Soul, like a star, wilt thou pursue thy way?
