The Beautiful Somewhere

Now hark how brilliantly doth shine that place So bright, of which the nymphs have spoken of. A place where malevolence gives chase To endless starry fields of sky above. What I would sacrifice to situate Myself in its divine vicinity! A hundred thousand centuries I'll wait To feel a flash of its affinity. But then I was given a free demand. An offer by three sylphs (of faith they lack) "I wish you'd send me to that somewhere grand," Said I, "And never ever bring me back!" And so, at once was I compressed to dust, In life true beauty lies in thoughts, never discussed.
