A VIOLINIST, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: The lark above our heads doth know
Last Line: List raptured, and thank god for thee.
Subject(s): Birds; Larks; Violins; Skylarks

THE lark above our heads doth know
A heaven we see not here below;
She sees it, and for joy she sings;
Then falls with ineffectual wings.

Ah, soaring soul! faint not nor tire!
Each heaven attained reveals a higher.
Thy thought is of thy failure; we
List raptured, and thank God for thee.
