A feter of lunging barns
For something be yond lb present,
Th dreamy spirit ysirm.
And on. from the trmi of pleasure,
la fsgee disquiet tarns.
For a voice from out lb future
Is linifini in sirens tone,
And hand is beekoain; onward,
Tj lbs realm of ths dim unknown,
And over lbs eyes I be glumour
Of e sweet, fls spell Is thrown.
Ideals of jer and beauty,
Like flowers In lbs heart anfuld
They are fair M lbs marble maiden
Pyimllm loved of old,
And lbs life that to ber w glean.
Ws sik for tboss visions cold.
Ob, beautiful, moklng phantoms !
Yoa eoms wilh your presenot bright.
From lbs fair tnirag of dreamland,
And haunt our walking i(hl.
So dear I hut the Joy of the present
Unheeded tsks thslr flight.
And oft when ths thing ws bve sought
Comes to us, sMll ws feel
There is Ucking a ntmele something,
Ws found in lbs loved ideal,
For alas J a lire tmel-of bleeeing
