BEETHOVEN, by                
First Line: In the cool and silent night
Last Line: He goes!
Subject(s): Beethoven, Ludwig Van (1770-1827); Composers; Music & Musicians; Symphonies; Concerts

In the cool and silent night
By the flickering candlelight,
When the weary are at rest
And sweet Bonn with peace is blest
He comes!

Sitting at the spinet there,
(Ghostly face and waving hair)
With imprisoned ecstasy
'Tis the Second Symphony
He plays!

From those yellowed ivories
Rise the rarest memories
Of those long-forgotten days,
Broken now the spell—it fades ...
He goes!
