FRAGMENT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Hushed is the lyre -- the hand that swept
Last Line: Its forest melodies hath lost its skill.


Hushed is the lyre — the hand that swept
The low and pensive wires,
Robb'd of its cunning, from the task retires.

Yes — it is still — the lyre is still;
The spirit which its slumbers broke
Hath pass'd away, — and that weak hand that woke
Its forest melodies hath lost its skill.
