    Bible: Hebrew Deuteronomy 24:5.

    God, who gave to him the lyre,
    Of all mortals the desire,
    For all breathing men’s behoof,

    Annexed a warning, poets say,
    To the bright premium,—
    Ever, when twain together play,
    Shall the harp be dumb.

    foredoomed, already dying,
    it charged the room
    with plangency
