Text Appearing Before Image:
sy reaches drawn, And fall of silver rain,Along the call how swift the sunrise streams ! Sound, sound again, O magical refrain !Peal on peal winding through the dewy air,Peal on peal answering far off and fair.Peal on peal bursting in victorious blare ! Sound, sound again. With your delicious pain, O wild sweet haunting strain.Till the sky swell with hint of heavenly gleamsAnd the heart break with gladness loosed from dreams! What buoyant spirit breathes the breath of mornAnd earths delight. Trumpets, O trumpets blest!Great voices, born Of consecrated gest,Across the ramparts ring and faint and fail !

And, heard, or guessed, Sweet, sweet, O sweet and best, Falln from some skyey crest,O horns of heaven, give your hero hail,Blown to him from the Kingdom of the Grail!
