The first verse of this poem is hauntingly beautiful to the point where it
almost scares you.I had the pleasure of singing this poem with my other
classmates in our chorus.It was an experience that I won't forget.

even as our cloudy fancies take

Suddenly shape in some divine expression,

Even as the troubled heart doth make

In the white countenance confession,

The troubled sky reveals

The grief it feels.



This is the poem of the air,

Slowly in silent syllables recorded;

this is the secret of despair,

Long in its cloudy bosom hoarded,

now whispered and revealed

to wood and field.
