Fata Morgana

O sweet illusions of song
That tempt me everywhere
In the lonely fields, and the throng
Of the crowded thoroughfare

I approach, and ye vanish away
I grasp you, and ye are gone
But ever by night and by day
The melody soundeth on

As the weary traveller sees
In desert or prairie vast
Blue lakes, overhung with trees
That a pleasant shadow cast

Fair towns with turrets high
And shining roofs of gold
That vanish as he draws nigh
Like mists together rolled

So I wander and wander along
And forever before me gleams
The shining city of song
In the beautiful land of dreams

But when I would enter the gate
Of that golden atmosphere
It is gone, and I wonder and wait
For the vision to reappear

Henry Longfellow 1870
