Sunday Evening Art Gallery Blog — Harps

The Harp that once through Tara’s halls

  The soul of music shed,

2d8ef4e906522b2442b06fdc8524a15b

Now hangs as mute on Tara’s walls

  As if that soul were fled.

3eafb33738caa73f1323b1942104e89f

So sleeps the pride of former days,

  So glory’s thrill is o’er,

f7a69bcf1493dee734c88e56d0fc54c2

And hearts, that once beat high for praise,

  Now feel that pulse no more.

No more to chiefs and ladies bright

  The harp of Tara swells:

The chord alone, that breaks at night,

Its tale of ruin tells.

23324d7b3d0769bd70a8a565c7d85225

Thus Freedom now so seldom wakes,

  The only throb she gives,

Is when some heart indignant breaks,

  To show that still she lives.
