As from the earth the light Balloon
(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

As from the earth the light Balloon

As from the earth the light Balloon
Asks nothing but release -
Ascension that for which it was,
Its soaring Residence.
The spirit looks upon the Dust
That fastened it so long
With indignation,
As a Bird
Defrauded of its song.

Profound! The spirit wants release from the dust and happily ascends when released.
