The Cloud by Percy Bysshe Shelley Part 3

Over earth and ocean, with gentle motion,
This pilot is guiding me,
Lured by the love of the genii that move
In the depths of the purple sea;
Over the rills, and the crags, and the hills,
Over the lakes and the plains,
Wherever he dream, under mountain or stream,
The spirit he loves remains;
And I all the while bask in heaven's blue smile,
Whilst he is dissolving in rains.

A pity that life is so short, there are many more clouds to admire than we can see in a single lifetime.

This is a great 'series'. I love the ekphrastic union of word and image.
