I’ve tried to find my melody

Inside these hallowed keys.

The dissonance still echoes strong

From wrecks of harmonies.

 

My ears are full of discontent.

My fingers faint at last

To hear a song beyond my room

That peals out from the past.

 

I hear my note inside that tune.

It rings alone to me.

So fully does it harmonize

Within eternity.
