Their world is quite as large as mine,
Up toward the sky their white wings shine,
Below the waves they make their quest,
Or on the swaying billows rest.

How joyfully they rock and float,
More agile than the lightest boat
As in their watery nests they hide
Forming a part of the crests they ride.

Some with the waves like children play
Till the lake seems as much alive as they
And wind-tossed waters rolling high
Are rendered vocal with their cry.

In summer sun and winter bare
Wheeling and drifting, always there.
Their lives are wide and fair and free,
Emblems of joyous liberty.
