MUSIC AND MEMORY, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Enchantress, touch no more that strain
Last Line: Still bringing all the pain they cost.
Subject(s): Music & Musicians; Transcendentalism

ENCHANTRESS, touch no more that strain!
I know not what it may contain,
But in my breast such mood it wakes
My very spirit almost breaks.
Thoughts come from out some hidden realm
Whose dim memorials overwhelm,
Still bring not back the things I lost, --
Still bringing all the pain they cost.
