A bright-haired child ; and that, when these he left
the buried Prophet from the grave To speak his doom, so shall this Poet-King Call the dead Past from its awful grave To tell him of our future. As the air Doth sphere the world, so shall his heart of loveLoving mankind, not peoples. As the lake Reflects the flower, tree, rock, and bending heaven, Shall he reflect our great humanity: And as the young spring breathes with living breath On a dead branch, 'till it sprouts fragrantly Green leaves and sunny flowers, shall he breathe life
Through every theme he touch, making all Beauty
And there was pause Till the great shade should enter. Like that herald, Walter, I'd rush across this waiting world
“ He comes !”
FROM THE SAME.
Wouldst thou, too, be a poet ?
Lady, ay !
Hast some great cherished theme?
Lovely in God's eyes, where, in barren space,
Wilt write of some young wanton of an isle
And how wilt thou begin it?
With old words! With the soliloquy with which God broke The silence of the dead eternities. At which most ancient words, O beautiful! With showery tresses like a child from sleep, Uprose the splendid-mooned and jewelled night, The loveliest boon of God.
Then your first chorus Must be the shoutings of the morning stars! What martial music is to marching men Should Song be to Humanity. In song The infant ages born and swathed are. A beauteous menial to our wants divine, A shape celestial tending the dark earth With light and silver service like the moon, Is Poesy; ever remember thisHow wilt thou end it ?
With God and Silence ! When the great universe subsides in God, Even as a moment's foam subsides again Upon the wave that bears it.
FROM THE SAME.
[A child runs past ; Walter looks after her.
To set this Age to music--the great work
pass, as doth a day
which even then
The sun is dying like a cloven king
She walks in lonely triumph through the night.
