April: Leonora Speyer

Leonora Speyer
Measure Me, Sky!

Measure me, sky!
Tell me I reach by a song
Nearer the stars;
I have been little so long!

Weigh me, high wind!
What will your wild scales record?
Profit of pain,
Joy by the weight of a word!

Horizon, reach out!
Catch at my hands, stretch me taut,
Rim of the world;
Widen my eyes by a thought!

Sky, be my depth,
WInd, be my width and my height,
World, my heart's span;
Loneliness, wings for my flight!
