Delight is as the flight

Delight is as the flight
Or in the Ratio of it,
As the Schools would say
The Rainbow’s way
A Skein
Flung colored, after Rain,
Would suit as bright,
Except that flight
Were Aliment

“If it would last”
I asked the East,
When that Bent Stripe
Struck up my childish
Firmament
And I, for glee,
Took Rainbows, as the common way,
And empty Skies
The Eccentricity

And so with Lives
And so with Butterflies
Seen magic through the fright
That they will cheat the sight
And Dower latitudes far on
Some sudden morn
Our portion in the fashion
Done
