I wandered alone and unseen
In a wondrous forest of deep green
I felt the ground moan under my weight
Could I not be lighter on my feet?

I asked the sunbeams through the green leaves
As they shone over me mockingly.
What would you be today
A wood-nymph,

I dare say
Or perhaps a gentle deer
I turned my face full to the sun
And dared it change me as it shone

I dare you, I said, change me now
I would be as you say transformed.
A part of you, a lightbeam of gold
Now the future is blur before me

I could see a blue sky above me
And with a thousand eyes
I watched thee
Oh! sun, which changes me,
With a thousand arms I caught the wind

And with a thousand feet I danced,
As I linger in your glorious space
Shine on my path.

Make me great,
To achieve the apogee of fame;
That my progenies would be full of my praises.
