Simple nearly beyond compare.
He is noble. He is rare.
He makes you squeak! Quiescent! Light!
Bright coloured things He brings to flight!
For all of that (so we are told)
He can be amazingly cold.
Who is He?
(In reply to Answer

we observe that "He" mentioned in terms of the second line, corresponds to the chemical symbol for 'Helium", and which is in keeping with the words "noble" and 'rare", since we know that helium is indeed a noble gas, while "rare gas" is another term for "noble gas".
We also observe in terms of the 4th line that "He brings to flight", which is indeed true, since helium is one of the "Lighter-than-air gases, also referred to as lifting gases, are used to fill craft called aerostats, which include free balloons, moored balloons......".
It is now trivial to verify that the fundamental tenets inclusive of the rest of the lines are fully in conformity with the various other properties of helium.
