Lord, let me live as I will.
I need a little wild freedom,
A little giddiness of heart, the strange taste of unknown flowers…
I love to bound to the heart of all thy marvels,
Leaping your chasms and
My mouth stuffed with intoxicating grasses;
Quiver with an adventurous delight
On the summit of the world.
Carme Bernes de Gasztold, (Translator: Rumner Godden), Prayer of the Goat.
