The Perpetual Song

The song, the song,
the perpetual song
in my soul
is stilled--
so gone!

I long, I long
for the swelling of song
in my soul

Oh song, my song,
oh what can be wrong?
Are you dead? 
I mourn
so long.

And then, oh song,
when I thought you were gone,
I perceived
a flutter--
not strong,

But real! My song!
You're alive, oh, my song!
Oh, I wish I could
speed you

 I'll cradle you, song!
Oh, perpetual song
in my soul--
on you
I wait.
