I'll never say goodbye to earthly danger
To freeze in peace, as they do, in the sky.
Be like a shooting star - fall down from heaven!
Stretch out your arms to me on earth and fly!

But one freezes here! and why? When a heart, as chill,
At my own would thrill
Back to life, and its fires out-fly?
Heart, shall we live or die?
The rest. . . . settle by-and-by!''
