The Passions

Excerpt from The Passions: A Poem, Pronounced at the Odeon, December 28, 1835, on Occasion of the Anniversary of the Birth of Spurzheim I. There is a sound of music in our ears -The organ's anthem peal, and solemn roarOf the great melodies that stir our tears, And the heart's fountains, as around they pour!There are far voices, of an eloquenceThat cannot be resisted - from the deepOf Memory - like hands which beckon hence, From the untravel'd realm of wizzard sleep.When dreams put on their mystery of power, And the stern Past returns, to sway the midnight hour. II. The Past - and yet the Present! - it is here, As in the magic of the scene again -In colors, lo! the buried years appear.Of hues that cannot deepen, nor yet wane.The Past - and yet the Present! O, if weCould trace the Future as the ages gone, And gird our sprits for Eternity, As we should gird them for that golden dawn, What an exalting heritage were givenThis Mortal - from Mortality - from dust, to Heaven!
