Saint George And The Dragon Saint George And The Dragon

Saint George And The Dragon
I In English nature, did Saint George prevail Over the Dragon? Maybe in the time When England knew not poverty, nor crime, Described by Cobbett, who would not go bail For falsehood, nor let truth remain in jail. It must, then, have renewed life from its slime, For, oh! through deeds, that turn the blood to chyme And eyes white inward, see him ride the gale. In English nature--oh now the saint--...

Rear Admiral Sims Rear Admiral Sims

Rear Admiral Sims
A Dukedom, and not one the worse for wear, Has Sims well earned by service to the King. 'Tis said at court, Howe's spirit following The ocean still, found Sims his natural heir And said: "Swap souls; and, that the swap be fair, Give me to boot, the bone of Freedom's wing, To make the skyey bird a hobbling thing In marshes the ignisfatus flare." The Eagle with his eye and pinion, trained... Poems - Post by : Gerald_Yancey - Date : July 2011 - Author : Edward Doyle - Read : 1467

Supreme Court Justice Charles L. Guy Supreme Court Justice Charles L. Guy

Supreme Court Justice Charles L. Guy
Your heart is not a traitor to your mind. Who, knowing innocence in danger, dares Not turn his eye, for fear of smirk, or stares, By other courts, is Justice's statue blind, That to the wall, not Bench, should be assigned. Oft, Precedent is Folly with gray hairs; So you, recalling Junius, heard the prayers Of friendless Stilow; then, what did you find? A fellow man doomed wrongfully to die A felon's...

A Speck, But Not A Stain, Harvard A Speck, But Not A Stain, Harvard

A Speck, But Not A Stain, Harvard
O Harvard of the Norton wreath of gold And pearled, Longfellow purple! wherefore frown? If Eliott is a speck upon your gown, It will wash off; it is no stain to hold, For you had let him go for being old. Your wisdom was confirmed when to the crown, A'gainst good folks who, like Elisha Brown, Fought for their homes, he gave his name's renown. Come, Agassiz! for, from the smallest bone,...

Minister Of Justice Palmer, A Bastile Builder Minister Of Justice Palmer, A Bastile Builder

Minister Of Justice Palmer, A Bastile Builder
O Bastile Builder! Nature, when she shaped Thy soul, was stricken, with a long attack Of sleeping sickness; nor till wheel and rack Had rusted, and man spirit had escaped The bolsted, loathesome tomb where right was raped, Did she awaken and, alack! alack! Deliver thee, who, put on Freedom's back, Would'st grab all things, at which thy Past-eyes gaped. Freedom would humor thee; so, down he flopped On Justice's floor to...

U. S. Senator James A. O'gorman And The Stalwarts U. S. Senator James A. O'gorman And The Stalwarts

U. S. Senator James A. O'gorman And The Stalwarts
On toward the Senate scuds a thunder-rack-- Nay, cyclone--and the columns--all star-straight-- Of Freedom's Temple sway with the roof's flood-weight. Ye Stalwarts who scorn off a fate, pitch-black, Holding the columns, let no sinew slack. A crash and through the roof, what floods of hate! Still, ye budge not, for "Freedom," your teeth grate, "Shall lie no wreck along the cyclone's track." Oh, not for you was dark the time to slumber,...

Life Takes Morning Hues With The Arts Of Peace Life Takes Morning Hues With The Arts Of Peace

Life Takes Morning Hues With The Arts Of Peace
America! from out the depths thy coast Was lifted skyward for Humanity. Thy Life, once finny circlings in the sea, Is now the orbits of the starry host, Encircling God with trust. Be this thy boast, When the long line of Ages, passing thee, Lifts each his heart and soul, and shouts with glee, "That Trust in Him was Sentinel on post." Night, that once boa-like hung from thy trees, Gorged with... Poems - Post by : hecsam - Date : July 2011 - Author : Edward Doyle - Read : 1597

All Luminaries Have One Trend All Luminaries Have One Trend

All Luminaries Have One Trend
All luminaries have one source, one trend. The stars that calm the sailor, long sea-swirled, And canopy fond lovers from the World, And those that lead the heart and spirit, blend. Lo, only in the things and thoughts that tend Toward Love's High Harmony, is truth unfurled; All else are lies, whence heart, soul, mind are hurled Back to the Right--to Progress without end. The stars all chant as one. My soaring song... Poems - Post by : 5streams - Date : July 2011 - Author : Edward Doyle - Read : 3419

Winifred Holt, The Lifesaver Of The Blind Winifred Holt, The Lifesaver Of The Blind

Winifred Holt, The Lifesaver Of The Blind
Once, blindness was a burning ship at sea, With panic-stricken souls on every deck. The flame blew inward on that awful wreck, Burning the hopes that make life glad and free. Ah! then, through thee, it was, Philanthropy, Who trains her searchlight on the smallest speck And Speed out boats, like horses, neck to neck, Reached the dark hulk and thrilled its crew with glee. The flame is quenched, that burned out heart and brain.... Poems - Post by : dunnea - Date : July 2011 - Author : Edward Doyle - Read : 998

The Golden Jubilee Of Sisters Of Charity The Golden Jubilee Of Sisters Of Charity

The Golden Jubilee Of Sisters Of Charity
I How thy Half Century shines over head! 'Tis an unfading rain-bow, one whose dyes Are richer and more numerous to the eyes Of Angels, than to ours. Its rays, if spread Above a flood of sin and world of dead, Give to the drowned, new life, new earth, new skies. Night counts her stars, but falters, when souls rise Bright with the Grace which God's annointed shed. Belov'd Irene, how great our joy to see...

Prayer For World Peace Prayer For World Peace

Prayer For World Peace
Lord, not Thy work, the World's calamities, But Man's. If Human Will revolt from Thine, It flees Thy region the stars all shine With longing to let down the Azure's Peace-- To dash its hosts from summits into seas, Where Empires are the breakers. There the brine Is anguish, and there Triumph leaves no sign, Save wreck on rock, and Plague, adrift on breeze. When Nations turn from Light, in thought, or life,...

Why The Stars Laugh Why The Stars Laugh

Why The Stars Laugh
Hark! 'tis the laughter of the stars at Earth, And Nature's, too, with every pitch of voice. Earth's carnival of sheer grotesque and noise, Where, gagged and manacled, walk Peace and Mirth, Shows Britain now, a beast of broadening girth, Set out to crush World Freedom. He destroys, And thinks his bear-like rearing, planet poise That is to influence the world's new birth. The stars are kind, as all the ages know;...

The Profiteers The Profiteers

The Profiteers
Now and in life--not Virgil--breaks a storm Of Harpies, harsh to ear and foul to smell. It sweeps War's lengthening coast each sea-swell Is Humans, gasping. Hope drags each cold form From hearth to hearth, to find no ember warm; Then, their eyes glitter frost, who hear hope yell As up she climbs the rocks and falls pell-mell Back from small herbs monsters swoop and swarm. Oh, could the bestial birds, in Virgil's verse,... Poems - Post by : jonnydd - Date : July 2011 - Author : Edward Doyle - Read : 2085

To Our Boys 'over There' To Our Boys "over There"

To Our Boys 'over There'
Where flies our flag is Freedom's holy ground; There, it unfurls all benisons to Man. The twin of Spring, its spread unfolds God's plan Of human happiness, by setting bound To greed, lust, powers,--all colds,--that Right be crowned. Lo! where it leads, ye youth form valor's van, Mirrored and echoed by the azure's span For ages, for Man's gain in yours is wound. Oh, justice's Hot Gulf Stream are ye, who open...

O Thou Pale Moon O Thou Pale Moon

O Thou Pale Moon
O fair, full moon! I look close at thy face. Thou must be happy, being in the skys; And, yet, thy flush grows pallor to mine eyes. Thou art as one, who breathless after chase, Would rest, but dreads to check her onward pace. O fugitive from where no fledgling flies, No bee finds bud, and where red billows rise, Engulfing down dark years, the Human Race! O thou pale moon, who hast companioned Man...

Woman, In Germany Woman, In Germany

Woman, In Germany
The German mother has too long been what A Chancellor once called the "Kingdom's Cow." Ah, as she bears the droves for slaughter, how Her dumb-beast eyes crave pity for her lot! See, there she smiles, like loving God forgot-- All His supernal patience on her brow. How long must her grand arch of brain, as now, Bear up a universe "of what should not"? There, lies she, crushed by troops in hot pursuit... Poems - Post by : waggy - Date : July 2011 - Author : Edward Doyle - Read : 3442

Kaiser, Beware Kaiser, Beware

Kaiser, Beware
Dost thou, mad Kaiser, for historic name, Set fire to Europe? Is it joy to gaze At blacker smoke than Etna's, and a blaze That wakes up Chaos, wild to come and claim The World, since Light, God-bidden though it came, Has failed to dawn upon our human ways? O Twin of Chaos! peer thou through the haze! 'Tis Human Beings feed the crackling flame. Beware, the smoke, like Etna's, is the curse...

My Bugler Boy My Bugler Boy

My Bugler Boy
With heart pain and with quiver of the lip, I bid my boy "good bye," with words of cheer. I hug him to my heart to hide a tear, And hold him close so long, that no tongue-slip Could more betray my bodings for his ship, Or troop, when landed. It is when I hear My daughters' voices, that I shame off fear And take my boy's both hands with firmest grip. Go, son, and, though with...

St. Peter's Cathedral In Rome St. Peter's Cathedral In Rome

St. Peter's Cathedral In Rome
This temple is soul-startling. 'Tis to me A thunder storm in stone, with Sinai flare Across the Ages. 'Tis the Fiend's despair And the Arch-angel's Triumph. It sets free The mind and soul with certitude, Christ's key Which, like the Sun, opes Heaven--the Good and Fair. Still, oft, what darkness drowns the sun's noon glare Within the Temple! 'Tis from Calvary. Oh, 'tis from Calvary's grief. 'Tis Christ's emotion, On from the... Poems - Post by : JohnDi - Date : July 2011 - Author : Edward Doyle - Read : 681

In Heaven No Heart Still Heaves In Heaven No Heart Still Heaves

In Heaven No Heart Still Heaves
Lo! God lets drop blue doves which ground the mind Like clover; then, with drawing to the skies, His pleasure is to watch the flocks arise. Here, there, they mount; they show no cloud, no wind, Can hinder homing; and the angels find No transport, like the sight, for, to their eyes, 'Tis more souls for the joy, which glorifies The Father, traced to love by pigeon-kind. Oh, to his love, how great our spirit's worth!... Poems - Post by : jpetillo - Date : July 2011 - Author : Edward Doyle - Read : 3013
