'Music and Memory' by Alfred Noyes
Music, that is God's memory, never forgets you.
Music, in atom, and star, and the falling leaf,
Binding all worlds in one, remembers for ever
The least light whisper and cry of our joy and grief;
Chord calling to chord, through swift resurrectional changes,
From key to key, in the long unbreakable chain . . .
All, all that we ever loved, though it sleep in the silence,
At a touch of the Master shall wake and be music again.
Alfred Noyes (1880–1958) was an English poet.
