The Voice that Sings

Original Text: 
R. F. Murray, The Scarlet Gown: Being Verses by a St. Andrews Man, 2nd edn., intro. by Andrew Lang (Glasgow: James MacLehose, 1909): 1. LE M9837sc Robarts Library
1The voice that sings across the night
2Of long forgotten days and things,
3Is there an ear to hear aright
4The voice that sings?
5It is as when a curfew rings
6Melodious in the dying light,
7A sound that flies on pulsing wings.
8And faded eyes that once were bright
9Brim over, as to life it brings
10The echo of a dead delight,
11The voice that sings.
