Bayard Taylor Quotes

Bayard Taylor Quotes: The source of each accordant strainLies deeper than the Poet's brain.First from the people's heart must springThe passions which he learns to sing;They are the wind, the harp is he,To voice their fitful melody,--The language of their varying fate,Their pride, grief, love, ambition, hate,--The talisman which holds inwroughtThe touchstone of the listener's thought;That penetrates each vain disguise,And brings his secret to his eyes.
