The Spirit of Air

 Coral and clear emerald, 
And amber from the sea, 
Lilac-coloured amethyst, 
Chalcedony; 
The lovely Spirit of Air 
Floats on a cloud and doth ride, 
Clad in the beauties of earth 
Like a bride.
So doth she haunt me; and words Tell but a tithe of the tale.
Sings all the sweetness of Spring Even in the nightengale? Nay, but with echoes she cries Of the valley of love; Dews on the thorns of her feet, And darkness above.
