Harps We Love

Henry Kendall

THE HARP we love hath a royal burst!
    Its strings are mighty forest trees;
And branches, swaying to and fro,
    Are fingers sounding symphonies.

The harp we love hath a solemn sound!
    And rocks amongst the shallow seas
Are strings from which the rolling waves
    Draw forth their stirring harmonies.

The harp we love hath a low sweet voice!
    Its strings are in the bosom deep,
And Love will press those hidden chords
    When all the baser passions sleep.
