WHO made me an immortal in the night?
Who took from me my former shape, and left
Only the essence? Here am I, bereft
Of all stability, .... a thread of light, ....
A strain of music, ... wandering wind, ... a flight
Of wild rose petals! What strange creature, deft
With magic charms, my mortal being cleft,
And let me free, all tremulous and bright?

Oh, is it love? I barely feel your smile,
So faint it is; but some day I shall know
How you have loosed me. In a little while,
After life's wind has blown me to and fro,
I shall come back and beg the charm again,
When the mad sun's clear face is dimmed with rain.
