FLUTTERED WINGS – #4 Paradise in a Dream

Home 9 Composers 9 Emily Green 9 FLUTTERED WINGS – #4 Paradise in a Dream


The splendour of the kindling day, 
The splendour of the setting sun, 

These move my soul to wend its way, And have done

With all we grasp and toil amongst and say.

The paling roses of a cloud,
The fading bow that arches space,
These woo my fancy toward my shroud,
Toward the place
Of faces veil’d, and heads discrown’d and bow’d.

The nation of the awful stars,
The wandering star whose blaze is brief, 

These make me beat against the bars 

Of my grief;
My tedious grief, twin to the life it mars.

O fretted heart toss’d to and fro, 

So fain to flee, so fain to rest! 
All glories that are high or low, 

East or west,

Grow dim to thee who art so fain to go.
