The clouds, the source of rain, one stormy night
Offered an opening to the source of dew;
Which I accepted with impatient sight,
Looking for my old sky-marks in the blue.
But stars were scarce in that part of the sky,
And no two were of the same constellation-
No one was bright enough to identify;
So ‘twas with not ungrateful consternation,
Seeing myself well lost once more, I sighed,
‘Where, where in heaven am I? But don’t tell me!
O opening clouds, by opening on me wide.
Let’s let my heavenly lostness overwhelm me.
