To Music: A Song

Music, thou Queen of Heaven, Care-charming-spell,
That strik'st a stillness into hell:
Thou that tam'st Tygers, and fierce storms (that rise)
With thy soul-melting Lullabies:
Fall down, down, down, from those thy chiming spheres,
To charm our souls, as thou enchant'st our ears.

almost all is said in this song about music! Music, thou Queen of Heaven, Care-charming-spell, That strik'st a stillness into hell: Thou that tam'st Tygers, and fierce storms (that rise) With thy soul-melting Lullabies: Fall down, down, down, from those thy chiming spheres, To charm our souls, as thou enchant'st our ears.
