1
    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 mount—faith is sight, life is feeling,
    Hope is the day-star of might!
          Dryad Song. Stanza 1.
2
    It was thy kiss, Love, that made me immortal. 1 
          Dryad Song. Stanza 2.
3
    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.
 
Note 1.
See Marlowe, page 40. Make me immortal with a kiss. [back]
