FOREWORD

If it were not for the hillocks
You'd think little of the hills;
The rivers would seem tiny
If it were not for the rills.
If you never saw the brushwood
You would under-rate the trees;
And so you see the purpose
Of such little rhymes as these.

Crowborough

1911

SONGS OF THE ROAD




A HYMN OF EMPIRE

(Coronation Year, 1911)
[3]

God save England, blessed by Fate,
So old, yet ever young:
The acorn isle from which the great
Imperial oak has sprung!
And God guard Scotland's kindly soil,
The land of stream and glen,
The granite mother that has bred
A breed of granite men!

God save Wales, from Snowdon's vales
To Severn's silver strand!
[4] For all the grace of that old race
Still haunts the Celtic land.
And, dear old Ireland, God save you,
And heal the wounds of old,
For every grief you ever knew
May joy come fifty-fold!

Set Thy guard over us,

Songs of the road 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Published in 1911, "Songs of the Road," is a collection of 32 poems by Arthur Conan Doyle. I did not find the first 8 poems to my taste and quit reading. But I can see how somebody else might enjoy them, so I gave the collection an average rating. The ebook is a scan with fairly good editing or better technology than used on many old books. I noted intrusive scanning errors in the contents table, but no memorable scanning errors in the text of those 8 poems. That means that, if there were errors, they were easy to ignore.
