AFTER A DOLMETSCH CONCERT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Out of the conquered past
Last Line: Surviving the voiceless tomb!
Subject(s): Dolmetsch, Arnold (1858-1940); Symphonies; Concerts


OUT of the conquered Past
Unravishable Beauty;
Hearts that are dew and dust
Rebuking the dream of Death;
Flower o' the clay down-cast
Triumphant in Earth's aroma;
Strings that were strained in rust
A-tremble with Music's breath!

Wine that was spilt in haste
Arising in fumes more precious;
Garlands that fell forgot
Rooting to wondrous bloom;
Youth that would flow to waste
Pausing in pool-green valleys—
And Passion that lasted not
Surviving the voiceless Tomb!
