AN ODE TO MUSIC: 1, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Descend, and with thy breath inspire my soul
Last Line: Love seems to flutter round on his aurora-wing.
Subject(s): Music & Musicians


DESCEND, and with thy breath inspire my soul;
Descend, and o'er my lyre
Diffuse thy living fire;
Oh! bid its chords a strain of grandeur roll:
Touched by thy hand their trembling accents ring;
Borne on thy sounding pinions through the sky,
To Heaven the notes in burning ardor spring,
And as the tones in softened whispers die,
Love seems to flutter round on his Aurora-wing.
