THE VOICE OF THOUGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Faint as the far-down tone
Last Line: Is the soul's sweet song to me.


Faint as the far-down tone
Beneath the sounding sea,
Muffled by its own moan,
To silent melody;
So faint we cannot tell
But that the sound we hear
Is some sweet roses' smell
That falls upon our ear;
(As if the Butterfly,
Shaking the Lily-bell,
While drinking joyfully,
Should toll its own death-knell!)
Sweeter than Hope's sweet lute
Singing of joys to be,
When Pain's harsh voice is mute,
Is the Soul's sweet song to me.
