I fly higher and higher
Propelled by soul afire.
Foot by foot I rise for
Each inch I gain reveals a mile more.
I climb to see eternity
Through rarified air, though solitary.
How high must I go for unlimited view?
I haven't seen Angels, I haven't seen Truth.
On ever-thinner ether come words of the wisened:
No matter how high you can't defeat the horizon.
