      "Hail to thee, blithe spirit!/Bird thou never wert/That from Heaven, or near it,/Pourest thy full heart/In profuse strains of unpremeditated art." William Blake "No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.".   ‘Bird thou never wert’ The skylark only sings when it is in the air, and usually from such a height that it is invisible to the human eye. ‘Bird thou never wert’ writes Shelley of this unseen presence, which is not so much a physical form as a joyous, disembodied voice that soars in the ‘deep blue’, that floats and runs in the golden light of evening.
