Arthur Quiller-Couch, comp.  The Oxford Book of Victorian Verse.  1922.
 
A Violinist
By Francis William Bourdillon (1852–1921)
 
THE LARK above our heads doth know
A heaven we see not here below;
She sees it, and for joy she sings;
Then falls with ineffectual wings.
 
Ah, soaring soul! faint not nor tire!        5
Each heaven attain’d reveals a higher.
Thy thought is of thy failure; we
List raptured, and thank God for thee.
