    I cannot sing the old songs
    Though well I know the tune,
    Familiar as a cradle-song
    With sleep-compelling croon;
    Yet though I'm filled with music,
    As choirs of summer birds,
    "I cannot sing the old songs"--
    I do not know the words.

Give us a song to cheer.

And grant that when I face the grisly Thing,
My song may trumptet down the gray Perhaps
Let me be as a tune-swept fiddlestring
That feels the Master Melody--and snaps.
