My Castle in the Air

by John Vance Cheney

John Vance Cheney

Or in the East or in the West,

Where shall I build my bird a nest?

Northward or southward, whither roam

To build my little love a home?

Up yonder, in the clean, sweet air,

I think that I could keep her, there,

Too much an angel for the ground,

For heaven somewhat too warm and round.
