As from the earth the light Balloon

Rating: 4.4
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.
