This swift overture that beauty plays
Upon the nerves
So expands the spirit
It cannot be wisdom
To ignore or fear it;

The keen expectancy
It wakes in every sense
Is subtle recompense --
To have known
Beauty close is to have grown;

Better from the musicale in sorrow,
Its warm overtones
A token for tomorrow,
Than to cold wisdom
Succumb
Inviolate and numb.
