MY soul has a sigh to be free, —
To roam with the scented winds over
The world, as a weariless rover,
Alike on the land and the sea;
My soul has a longing to be
Loosed out with the night's mystery,
On the fields of the flower and clover.

My soul has a sighing to roam
Where beauty's bright beacons are burning;
To the garlanded gates I am turning
That lead from these castles of loam
To the limitless leagues of the nome
Which the spirit has dreamed as its home
In the happiest moments of yearning.
