| 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.
| One man with a dream, at pleasure,|
Shall go forth and conquer a crown:
And three with a new songs measure
Can trample a kingdom down.
| Each age is a dream that is dying,|
Or one that is coming to birth.
