Above, a playful ocean
   Mocks cumuli below–
In busy shuttling motion
   The trails weave to and fro;

My eye hangs high suspended
   Beneath a thread of air,
To view the world upended
   As from an angel's chair.

How like the air's frail shimmer
   Is time: how soon the past
Retreats; now fading dimmer,
   It slips beyond my grasp.
