River Voices

A SOLEMN Slow chorale, with bourdon broadening Into a grand, crescendo, the ancient. rivers sing ;

The mountain cataracts crashing in throttled fury; shrill

Their scream of thwarted passion through riven .gorge and


Bust Loveliestis the music of little moorland streams Wayyo:as r-d, and sad, and wistful, like songs half heard in

dreants. E. W. 11.1NnYi.
