Poetry

Excerpt: Introduction: // Hear the voice of the Bard! // Who Present, Past, & Future sees; // Whose ears have heard // The Holy Word // That walk'd among the ancient trees, // Calling the lapsed Soul, // And weeping in the evening dew; // That might controll // The starry pole, // And fallen, fallen light renew! // ``O Earth, O Earth, return! // Arise from out the dewy grass; // Night is worn, // And the morn // Rises from the slumberous mass. // ``Turn away no more; // ...
