TESTO DEL LIED"Oh! for the wings of a dove!"
di (Agnes) Mary (Frances) Robinson (1857-1944)
Oh ! for the wings of a dove ! To fly far away from my own soul, Reach and be merged in the vast whole heaven of infinite love !
Oh ! that I were as the rain To fall and be lost in the great sea One with the waves till the drowned me Might not be severed again.
Infinite arms of the air Surrounding the stars and without strife
Blending our life with their large life Lift me and carry me there!
