"For we are afar with the dawning"


extrait de The Music Makers 




For we are afar with the dawning

And the suns that are not yet high,

 And out of the infinite morning

 Intrepid you hear us cry ...

How, spite of your human scorning,

Once more God's future draws nigh,

 And already goes forth the warning

 That ye of the past must die.


Arthur O'Shaughnessy (1844-1881)
