LOVE AND MUSIC.

I LISTENED to the music broad and deep,
I heard the tenor in an ecstasy
Touch the sweet distant goal, I heard the cry
Of prayer and passion, and I heard the sweep
Of mighty wings, that in their going keep
The music that the spheres make endlessly ;
Then my cheeks shivered, tears made blind each eye,
As flame to flame I felt the quick blood leap,
And through the tides and moonlit winds of sound
To me love's passionate voice grew audible :
Again I felt your heart to my heart bound,
Then silence on the viols and voices fell ;
But, like the still, small voice within a shell,
I heard Love thrilling through the void profound.
