Excerpt from Reincarnated: A Romance of the Soul

Prelude

As on an organ with a groping touch
The player picks from out the sleeping chords
One single note, and then another forms
Beneath the hand, that wandering here and there
Feels out the minor of the loftier strain,
That disconnected, fugitive and vague,
Yet holds within its lesser harmonies
The keynotes of the whole,
And through this inspiration to his thought,
Fair, fleeting fancies take their perfect shapes,
For now the prelude holds the basic parts
From which are improvised completed wholes;
So with the tale which follows; in its course
To touch alone the tones that underlie,
The warp that runs among the pictured woof,
And holds it close together.
For so one learns to handle all the stops,
Test the capacity of all the chords,
Finger among the softer keys, and, then,
When hand and organ have grown each to each,
Presses the swell and from its bursting pipes
A mighty melody that moves the soul,
Until it shakes its dusty trammels off
And soars aloft unbound.
