Through the night a poet listened
To voices he heard in a dream;
They gave a song to the moonlight;
To wind, a wailing theme.

The eerie tones were mingled
With noises of outer ways
And the wistful undertoning
Of all his happier days.

As the echoes all had meaning
For life in a busy town,
That a poet may interpret,
The dreamer wrote them down.

And the pen was a sword of the spirit
That put despair to flight
And pointed a way, resplendent,
In living words of light.
