| I am immortal! I know it! I feel it!|
Hope floods my heart with delight!
Running on air, mad with life, dizzy, reeling,
Upward I mountfaith is sight, life is feeling,
Hope is the day-star of might!
| Dryad Song. Stanza 1.|
| It was thy kiss, Love, that made me immortal. 1 |
| Dryad Song. Stanza 2.|
| Chance cannot touch me! Time cannot hush me!|
Fear, hope, and longing, at strife,
Sink as I rise, on, on, upward forever,
Gathering strength, gaining breath,naught can sever
Me from the Spirit of Life!
| Dryad Song. Stanza 4.|
