We Are The Music-Makers Comments

Rating: 3.9

We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.

Goosebumps here. Richly descriptive; A poet's dream! Our poems shall live on, long after we are gone. I'm still new enough to this site (since March 13th) that I only just discovered this feature, but this one is going in my favourite poems list!

The version posted elsewhere on this site (http: // is more correct. There, the sixth line reads, 'On whom the pale moon gleams' not 'Upon whom the pale moon gleams' as it appears here.

This isn't the full poem. Do you know of anywhere that has the full thing?

It had 9 verses originally. Palgrave discarded 6 of them and put the remaining 3 in his Palgrave's Golden Treasury like verses 1 and 3 - 2 is a bit Victorian British Empire. What you think?
