The Mission of Orpheus

After a line by Margaret Fuller

 

Each Orpheus must nature forge in his soul’s fire,

and play its secret chords on his sweet lyre,

pluck its melodies on supple strings,

and try to stir to life dead dreams;

with his enchanting art attempt to raise

mere mortal love from an immortal grave.
