My Bird

  My soul is a scared bird, the highest heaven is nest  
  Fretting within its body-bars, if finds on earth its nest  
When rising from its dusty heap this bird of mine would soar
  'Twin find upon the lofty gate the nest it had before  
Sidrah would receive my bird, when it has winged its way
  And on Empyrean's top, my falcon's foot would stay  
Over the ample field of earth is fortune's shadow cast
  Where upon wings and pennons borne this bird of mine has passed  
No spot in the two worlds it owns, above the sphere its goal
  Its body from the quarry is, from "No Place" is its soul  
This only in glorious world my bird its splendor shows
  Rosy bowers of Paradise its daily food bestows
