Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy. (1844–1881)
 
 
1
    We are the music-makers,
  We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
  And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
  On whom the pale moon gleams:
We are the movers and shakers
  Of the world forever it seems.
          Ode.
2
    One man with a dream, at pleasure,
  Shall go forth and conquer a crown:
And three with a new song’s measure
  Can trample a kingdom down.
          Ode.
3
    Each age is a dream that is dying,
  Or one that is coming to birth.
          Ode.
