Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1864 Excerpt: ...wavering purpose when at bay. This way or That--" at once! to-day!" Were worth ten thousand men at hand. IV. Move on the columns! With the sweep Of eagles let them strike the foe; The hurricane lays the forest low: Momentum wings the daring leap That clears the chasm: the lightning stroke Shivers the wind-defying oak; The earthquake rocks the eternal steep. v. Move on the columns! Why have sprung Our myriad hosts from hill and plain? Leaving the sickle in the grain,--MOVE ON THE COLUMNS. 161 Closing the harvest hymn half sung,--Half filled the granary and the mow,.--Unturn'd the sod, untouched the plough,--Scythes rusting where they last weTe swung. VI. Move on the columns! They are here To found anew a people's faith, To save from treason and from death A nation which they all revere; And on each manly brow is set A purpose such as never yet Was thwarted when, as now, sincere. VII. Move on the columns! Earth contains No guerdon for the good and free Like that which bless'd our Liberty: And while its banner still remains The symbol of united power, Nor man nor fiend can tell the hour In which its star-lit glory wanes. VIII. Move on the columns strong and bright! Strike down the sacrilegious hands That clutch and wield the battle brands 162 LANDER. Which menace with their Wrong our Right, Words now are wasted--glittering steel Alone can make the last appeal: They 've will'd it so--and we must fight. IX. Move on the columns! If they go By ways they had not thought to take, To fields we had not meant to make; Or if they bring unthought-of woe, Let that which woke the fiery wrath Fall, scorn'd and blackening in its path. Not man, but God, may stay the blow. Move on the columns! LANDEB. BY THOMAS BAILEY ALDRICH. /"LOSE his bleak eyes--they shall n...
