From the recording Hear the Voice of the Bard


Hear the Voice of the Bard Introduction to Songs of ExperienceHear the voice of the Bard!Who Present, Past, & Future seesWhose ears have heard,The Holy Word,That walk'd among the ancient trees.   Calling the lapsed Soul And weeping in the evening dew:That might controll, The starry pole;And fallen fallen light renew!   O Earth O Earth, return! Arise from out the dewy grass;Night is worn, And the morn Rises from the slumberous mass.   Turn away no more:Why wilt thou turn awayThe starry floor The watry shore Is giv’n thee till the break of day.
