Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

Ode

We are the music-makers,


And we are the dreamers of dreams,


Wandering by lone sea-breakers


And sitting by desolate streams;


World losers and world forsakers,


On whom the pale moon gleams:


Yet we are the movers and shakers


Of the world for ever, it seems.


 


With wonderful deathless ditties


We build up the world’s great cities.


And out of a fabulous story


We fashion an empire’s glory:


One man with a dream, at pleasure,


Shall go forth and conquer a crown;


And three with a new song’s measure


Can trample an empire down.


 


We, in the ages lying


In the buried past of the earth,


Built Nineveh with our sighing,


And Babel itself with our mirth;


And o’erthrew them with prophesying


To the old of the new world’s worth;


For each age is a dream that is dying,


Or one that is coming to birth.
