Young Ones

One of my favorite quotes is by Arthur O’Shaughnessy from the initial lines of the Ode from his book Music and Moonlight (1874). It starts with;

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,

I’ve always perceived it and the several lines that follow as a honor to artists. I’ve even placed it on the front page of my fine art website.

However, I also think it can be identified with children, looking forward, and things to come.

It continues with,

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.
