Excerpt

darkling the poplar awake, 85 So melting her soul into music, you'd vow 'twas her passion, her own, She plaineth--her sister forgot, with the Daulian crime long-agone. Hark! Hush! Draw around to the circle ... Ah, loitering Summer! Say when For me shall be broken the charm, that I chirp with the swallow again? I am old; I am dumb; I have waited to sing till Apollo withdrew-- 90 So Amyclae a moment was mute, and for ever a wilderness grew. Now learn ye to love who loved never--now ye who have loved, love anew, To-morrow!--to-morrow!
