Home again, a sceptre of light
Lovely apparition of delight
I see and understand
As hope takes flight.

All the love in your heart
Is like a crystal beat
Of sound that is not music
But unmelodious tapping
Of some rhythm of the soul.

Let not the sounding madness
Send a dart into your soul
Let not the startling silken magic
Sprinkle dust into the bowl
Of a thousand falling high notes
In a rising watched-for Sol.
