From The Spirit of the Sphere

Richard Watson Dixon (1833–1900)
.. THOU 1 art light and them art free,
And to live rejoiceth thee,
Where the splendours greatest be …
Thou a seraph art to go
All undaunted to and fro        5
Where the fiercest ardours glow …
Thou an angel art, and well
It sufficeth thee to dwell
In the smallest creature’s cell …
Thou a spirit art most sweet,        10
And to make all life complete
Everywhere thou hast thy seat.
