Is the hardest thing.“

„Come, let us mount on the wings of the morning,
Flying for joy of the flight“

—  Margaret Fuller American feminist, poet, author, and activist 1810 - 1850

Dryad Song (1900)
Kontext: Come, let us mount on the wings of the morning,
Flying for joy of the flight,
Wild with all longing, now soaring, now staying,
Mingling like day and dawn, swinging and swaying,
Hung like a cloud in the light:
I am immortal! I feel it! I feel it!
Love bears me up, love is might!
