Measure Me, Sky!

Lyrics by Leonora Speyer, Music by Jonathan Reid

Measure me, sky! Tell me I reach by a song Nearer the stars; I have been little so long. Weigh me, high wind! What will your wild scales record? Profit of pain, Joy by the weight of a word. Horizon, reach out! Catch at my hands, stretch me taut, Rim of the world: Widen my eyes by a thought. Sky, be my depth, Wind, be my width and my height, World, my heart's span; Loveliness, wings for my flight.
