Subject(s): Desire; Life; Stars


OH, let me out into the starlight night —
My soul is stifling — and my thoughts need room!
Away with petty aims that dwarf and blight
And down with false desires that work for doom!

Out here — out here the wind is wondrous sweet,
And cool caresses fan my fevered face;
My gaze can reach where stars and stillness meet
And vastness holds me in its wide embrace.

Ah, here at last my sordid soul is pure —
Unworthy thoughts slip from me one by one,
And naught but highest purposes endure —
With lower things I am forever done!

Oh, may I but absorb within my life
The purity and grandeur of this hour —
And so, 'mid days of tumult and of strife,
Stand steadfast in the consciousness of power!
