The initial lines of the Ode by Arthur O’Shaughnessy (1874)

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

– Arthur O’Shaughnessy (1874), the initial lines of the Ode
