He sat—a tall and wraith-like form—
Before a row of dumb, white keys,
And from his long, weird fingers dropt
Faint music like soft rain on trees.

The pattering drops awoke a voice
So sweet, all other sounds were stayed.
The tempo changed. Staccato taps,
A dancing, revelling host obeyed.

Then thunder! Torrents! Deep despair
That chilled one as with drenching rain!
But magic fingers calmed the storm.
Soft showers revived, brought joy again.
