Last Line: Poured from his heart.
Subject(s): Poetry & Poets

How fitting that a few short days
From out the busy year
Should be devoted to the muse that plays
Upon the strings,
Caught by the keener ear,
Tuned to the hidden things
Of inmost life that sings
And is immortal.

While listening to poetic lay
Sung by the Laurel-crowned,
A timid, shrinking, helpless soul must stay
Because no all-discerning eye can see
Prospective poet -- in the lines that he
Poured from his heart.
