High above the earth

I want to live high above the earth, free from its smog and from its dirt, where eagle fly, from their clefts they thrive; and they never wonder why; Yes this is what I want, with all my heart at once, to suddenly be elevated from its worldly elements, and all its artificial intelligence; Above the earth and in it's blue skis, as your eyes are baptized in fresh air is supplied, where just to be an example is highly prized; Have mercy lord and grant this request, to live above the earth is my bequest, to be free from this present temptations and sensation; This has been from the beginning of creation, as we all ask for salvation, even the animals, ants and all its plants; To sit in the saddle with the horses and its bridle, to be in the wedding as in the bridal, to play the harp as a parable is comparable, as the wedding garment is wearable; This is high above the earth and without it will be terrible.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
