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
