I will live as I will

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.
