THE LUTE-PLAYER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: He touched the strings; and lo, the strain
Last Line: And wakened it to light and sound.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Lutes


He touched the strings; and lo, the strain,
As waters dimple to the rain,
Spontaneous rose and fell again.

In swaddling clothes of silence bound,
His genius a soul had found,
And wakened it to light and sound.
