Musicians wrestling Everywhere! All day - among the Crowded Air I hear the silver strife - And waking, long before the morn Such Transport breaks upon the Town I think it that "New Life"! It is not Bird - it has no Nest - Nor "Band", in Brass and Scarlet- drest - Nor Tamborin -nor Man. It is not Hymn from pulpit read - The Morning Stars - the Treble led On Time's first Afternoon! Some say - it is the "Spheres" at play! Some say - that bright Majority Of vanished Dames - and Men - Some think it service in the place Where we- with late- celestial face - Please God - shall Ascertain! Emily.
