Higher!


When I was a boy of seven,
I used to climb apple-trees.

When I was a lad of fifteen,
I used to walk on the roofs.

When I was a young man,
I used to conquer the peaks.

And now I'm a grey-haired cloud,
I'm going wherever I want.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
