"MUSIC strain, where do you go,
When you hush and vanish so?"

"Why, I only take my rest
In a spot that's beauty-blest."

"Music strain, may mortals too
Gird them up and go with you?"

"Nay, for I am all divine
And my country is not thine."

"Music strain, will death reveal
All the bliss you make us feel?"

"Mortal, harken, love me well,
And together we may dwell."

"Yes, but when, O subtle song!
For the waiting seems so long?"

"I will house thee safe and sure,
When thy love is perfect-pure."

"Ah, it seems I can not stay
For the break of such a day!"

"Mortal, it is wondrous near;
Hope and hark, and have no fear."
