He saw the gilded weathercock Swim in the moonlight as he passed, And the meeting-house windows, blank and bare, Gaze at him with a spectral glare, As if they already stood aghast At the bloody work they would look upon.
It was two by the village clock, W h e n he came to the bridge in Concord town. He heard the bleating of the flock, And the twitter of birds among the trees, And felt the breath of the morning breeze Blowing over the meadows brown. And one was safe and asleep in his bed W h o at the bridge would be first to fall, W h o that day would be lying dead, Pierced by a British musket-ball.
You know the rest. So through the night rode Paul Revere; And so through the night went his cry of alarm To every Middlesex village and farm, — A cry of defiance and not of fear, A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door, And a word that shall echo forevermore! For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, Through all our history, to the last, In the hour of darkness and peril and need, The people will waken and listen to hear The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed, And the midnight message of Paul Revere. W h a t pictures to the taster rise, Of Dervish or of Almeh dances!
Of Eblis, or of Paradise, Set all aglow with Houri glances! The Koran's reader makes complaint Of Shitan dancing on and off it; The robber offers alms, the saint Drinks Tokay and blasphemes the Prophet. Such scenes that Eastern plant awakes; But we have one ordained to beat it. The Haschish of the West, which makes Or fools or knaves of all who eat it. The preacher eats, and straight appears His Bible in a new translation; Its angels negro overseers, And Heaven itself a snug plantation!
The man of peace, about whose dreams The sweet millennial angels cluster, Tastes the mad weed, and plots and schemes, A raving Cuban filibuster! The noisiest Democrat, with ease, It turns to Slavery's parish beadle; The shrewdest statesman eats and sees Due southward point the polar needle. The Judge partakes, and sits erelong Upon his bench a railing blackguard; Decides off-hand that right is wrong, And reads the ten commandments backward. O potent plant!
It has since been the subject of a good deal of conflicting testimony, and the story was probably incorrect in some of its details. It is admitted by all that Barbara Frietchie was no myth, but a worthy and highly esteemed gentlewoman, intensely loyal and a hater of the Slavery Rebellion, holding her Union flag sacred and keeping it with her Bible; that when the Confederates halted before her house, and entered her dooryard, she denounced them in vigorous language, shook her cane in their faces, and drove them out; and when General Burnside's troops followed close upon Jackson's, she waved her flag and cheered them.
It is stated that May Quantrell, a brave and loyal lady in another part of the city, did wave her flag in sight of the Confederates. It is possible that there has been a blending of the two incidents. Up from the meadows rich with corn, Clear in the cool September morn, The clustered spires of Frederick stand Green-walled by the hills of Maryland.
Round about them orchards sweep, Apple and peach tree fruited deep, Fair as the garden of the Lord To the eyes of the famished rebel horde, On that pleasant morn of the early fall W h e n Lee marched over the mountain-wall; Over the mountains winding down, Horse and foot, into Frederick town. Forty flags with their silver stars, Forty flags with their crimson bars, Flapped in the morning wind: the sun Of noon looked down, and saw not one.
Up rose old Barbara Frietchie then, Bowed with her fourscore years and ten; Bravest of all in Frederick town, She took up the flag the men hauled down; In her attic window the staff she set, To show that one heart was loyal yet. Under his slouched hat left and right He glanced; the old flag met his sight. It shivered the window, pane and sash; It rent the banner with seam and gash. Quick, as it fell, from the broken staff Dame Barbara snatched the silken scarf, She leaned far out on the window-sill, And shook it forth with a royal will. A shade of sadness, a blush of shame, Over the face of the leader came; The nobler nature within him stirred To life at that woman's deed and word; " W h o touches a hair of yon gray head Dies like a dog!
March on! All day long through Frederick street Sounded the tread of marching feet: All day long that free flag tost Over the heads of the rebel host. Ever its torn folds rose and fell On the loyal winds that loved it well; And through the hill-gaps sunset light Shone over it with a warm good-night.
Barbara Frietchie's work is o'er, And the Rebel rides on his raids no more. Honor to her! The Barefoot Boy Blessings on thee, little man, Barefoot boy, with cheek of tan! W i t h thy turned-up pantaloons, And thy merry whistled tunes; W i t h thy red lip, redder still Kissed by strawberries on the hill; W i t h the sunshine on thy face, Through thy torn brim's jaunty grace; From my heart I give thee joy, — I was once a barefoot boy! Prince thou art, — the grown-up man Only is republican. Let the million-dollared ride! Barefoot, trudging at his side, Thou hast more than he can buy In the reach of ear and eye, — Outward sunshine, inward joy: Blessings on thee, barefoot boy!
Oh for boyhood's painless play, Sleep that wakes in laughing day, Health that mocks the doctor's rules, Knowledge never learned of schools, Of the wild bee's morning chase, Of the wild-flower's time and place, Flight of fowl and habitude Of the tenants of the wood; How the tortoise bears his shell, How the woodchuck digs his cell, And the ground-mole sinks his well; How the robin feeds her young, How the oriole's nest is hung; Where the whitest lilies blow, Where the freshest berries grow, 55 JOHN GREENLEAF WHITTIER Where the ground-nut trails its vine, Where the wood grape's clusters shine; Of the black wasp's cunning way, Mason of his walls of clay, And the architectural plans Of gray hornet artisans!
For, eschewing books and tasks, Nature answers all he asks: Hand in hand with her he walks, Face to face with her he talks, Part and parcel of her joy, — Blessings on the barefoot boy! Oh for boyhood's time of June, Crowding years in one brief moon, W h e n all things I heard or saw, Me, their master, waited for.
I was rich in flowers and trees, Humming-birds and honey-bees; For my sport the squirrel played, Plied the snouted mole his spade; For my taste the blackberry cone Purpled over hedge and stone; Laughed the brook for my delight Tlirough the day and through the night, Whispering at the garden wall, Talked with me from fall to fall; Mine the sand-rimmed pickerel pond, Mine the walnut slopes beyond, Mine, on bending orchard trees, Apples of Hesperides!
Still as my horizon grew, Larger grew my riches too; All the world I saw or knew Seemed a complex Chinese toy, Fashioned for a barefoot boy! Oh for festal dainties spread, Like my bowl of milk and bread; Pewter spoon and bowl of wood, On the door-stone, gray and rude! I was monarch: pomp and joy Waited on the barefoot boy! Cheerily, then, my little man, Live and laugh, as boyhood can! Though the flinty slopes be hard, Stubble-speared the new-mown sward, Every morn shall lead thee through Fresh baptisms of the dew; Every evening from thy feet Shall the cool wind kiss the heat: All too soon these feet must hide In the prison cells of pride, Lose the freedom of the sod, Like a colt's for work be shod, Made to tread the mills of toil, Up and down in ceaseless moil: Happy if their track be found Never on forbidden ground; Happy if they sink not in Quick and treacherous sands of sin.
To screen themselves they charged their captain with the crime. I have read it with great interest and think good use has been made of the abundant material. No town in Essex County has a record more honorable than Marblehead; no one has done more to develop the industrial interests of our New England seaboard, and certainly none have given such evidence of self-sacrificing patriotism. I am glad the story of it has been at last told, and told so well. I have now no doubt that thy version of Skipper Ireson's ride is the correct one. My verse was founded solely on a fragment of rhyme which I heard from one of my early schoolmates, a native of Marblehead.
I supposed the story to which it referred dated back at least a century. I knew nothing of the participators, and the narrative of the ballad was pure fancy. I am glad for the sake of truth and justice that the real facts are given in thy book. I certainly would not knowingly do injustice to any one, dead or living.
Of all the rides since the birth of time, Told in story or sung in rhyme, — On Apuleius's Golden Ass, Or one-eyed Calender's horse of brass, Witch astride of a human back, Islam's prophet on Al-Borak,— The strangest ride that ever was sped Was Ireson's, out from Marblehead! Old Floyd Ireson, for his hard heart, Tarred and feathered and carried in a cart By the women of Marblehead! Body of turkey, head of owl, Wings a-droop like a rained-on fowl, Feathered and ruffled in every part, Skipper Ireson stood in the cart. Scores of women, old and young, Strong of muscle, and glib of tongue, Pushed and pulled up the rocky lane, Shouting and singing the shrill refrain: "Here's Flud Oirson, fur his horrd horrt, Torr'd an' futherr'd an' corr'd in a corrt By the women o' Morble'ead!
Back he answered, "Sink or swim! Brag of your catch of fish again! Fathoms deep in dark Chaleur That wreck shall lie forevermore. Mother and sister, wife and maid, Looked from the rocks of Marblehead Over the moaning and rainy sea, — Looked for the coming that might not be! W h a t did the winds and the sea-birds say Of the cruel captain who sailed away? Through the street, on either side, Up flew windows, doors swung wide; Sharp-tongued spinsters, old wives gray, Treble lent the fish-horn's bray.
Little the wicked skipper knew Of the fields so green and the sky so blue. Riding there in his sorry trim, Like an Indian idol glum and grim, Scarcely he seemed the sound to hear Of voices shouting, far and near: "Here's Flud Oirson, fur his horrd horrt, Torr'd an' futherr'd an' corr'd in a corrt By the women o' Morble'ead! W h a t is the shame that clothes the skin To the nameless horror that lives within? Waking or sleeping, I see a wreck, And hear a cry from a reeling deck! Hate me and curse me, — I only dread The hand of God and the face of the dead!
Then the wife of the skipper lost at sea Said, "God has touched him! Poor Floyd Ireson, for his hard heart, Tarred and feathered and carried in a cart By the women of Marblehead! Like two rose-leaves in sunshine when blowing, Just curled softly, gently apart, Were her lips by her passion, while growing In perfume on the stalk of her heart. At the birth of this fair virgin Vestal, She was taken for Venus' child; And her voice, though like diamond in crystal, Was not more melodious than mild.
Thus she stood on the arabesque borders Of the beautiful blossoms that blew On the banks of the crystalline waters, Every morn, in the diaphane dew. The Moon of Mobile The Song that she sang was all written In rubies that sparkled like wine, Like the Morning Star burning, new litten By the tablets of diamond divine.
Like some ravishing sound made from divers Sweet instruments fluting in June, From her soul flowed those musical rivers Of Odin, called the rivers of Rune. Then come to my bower, sweet Angel! Sweet Ellen! My Mary, mavourneen, the Moon of Mobile! Like the Gods when they feed on the blisses Of the undefiled glories above; So my soul drank delight from the kisses Of the lips of my beautiful love. Love's fountain of life to unseal; You shall live in this amber Evangel, Sweet Ellen!
It was the capital of Southern China, under the dynasty of the Song. I called my servant, and he came; How kind it was of him To mind a slender man like me, He of the mighty limb. The fourth; he broke into a roar; The fifth; his waistband split; The sixth; he burst five buttons off, And tumbled in a fit.
Ten days and nights, with sleepless eye, I watched that wretched man, And since, I never dare to write As funny as I can. He read so much of that language, that his English half turned into it. He got caught in town, one hot summer, in pretty close quarters, and wrote, or began to write, a series of city pastorals.
I remember some of his verses, if you want to hear them. The old man had a great deal to say about "aestivation," as he called it, in opposition, as one might say, to hibernation. Intramural aestivation, or townlife in summer, he would say, is a peculiar form of suspended existence, or semi-asphyxia. One wakes up from it about the beginning of the last week in September. This is what I remember of his poem: — In candent ire the solar splendor flames; The foles, languescent, pend from arid rames; His humid front the cive, anheling, wipes, And dreams of erring on ventiferous ripes.
How dulce to vive occult to mortal eyes, Dorm on the herb with none to supervise, Carp the suave berries from the crescent vine, And bibe the flow from longicaudate kine! To me, alas! Me wretched! Let me curr to quercine shades! Effund your albid hausts, lactiferous maids!
Oh, might I vole to some umbrageous clump, — Depart, — be off, — excede, — evade, — erump! The Deacons Masterpiece Or, the wonderful "One-Hoss Shay" A logical story [The following note was prefaced to the poem when it appeared in an illustrated edition. The mind may take a certain pleasure in this picture of the impossible.
The event follows as a logical consequence of the presupposed condition of things. There is a practical lesson to be got out of the story. Observation shows us in what point any particular mechanism is most likely to give way. In a wagon, for instance, the weak point is where the axle enters the hub or nave. W h e n the wagon breaks down, three times out of four, I think, it is at this point that the accident occurs.
The workman should see to it that this part should never give way; then find the next vulnerable place, and so on, until he arrives logically at the perfect result attained by the deacon. Have you heard of the wonderful one-hoss shay, That was built in such a logical way It ran a hundred years to a day, And then, of a sudden, it — ah, but stay, I'll tell you what happened without delay, Scaring the parson into fits, Frightening people out of their wits, — Have you ever heard of that, I say?
Seventeen hundred and fifty-five. Georgius Secundus was then alive, — Snuffy old drone from the German hive. That was the year when Lisbon-town Saw the earth open and gulp her down, And Braddock's army was done so brown, Left without a scalp to its crown. It was on the terrible Earthquake-day That the Deacon finished the one-hoss shay.
Now in building of chaises, I tell you what, There is always somewhere a weakest spot, — In hub, tire, felloe, in spring or thill, In panel, or crossbar, or floor, or sill, In screw, bolt, thoroughbrace, — lurking still, Find it somewhere you must and will, — Above or below, or within or without, — And that's the reason, beyond a doubt, That a chaise breaks down, but does n't wear out. Never an axe had seen their chips, And the wedges flew from between their lips, Their blunt ends frizzled like celery-tips; Step and prop-iron, bolt and screw, Spring, tire, axle, and linchpin too, Steel of the finest, bright and blue; Thoroughbrace bison-skin, thick and wide; Boot, top, dasher, from tough old hide Found in the pit when the tanner died.
That was the way he "put her through. I tell you, I rather guess She was a wonder, and nothing less! Colts grew horses, beards turned gray, Deacon and deaconess dropped away, Children and grandchildren — where were they? But there stood the stout old one-hoss shay As fresh as on Lisbon-earthquake-day! Eighteen hundred increased by ten; — "Hahnsum kerridge" they called it then. Little of all we value here Wakes on the morn of its hundredth year Without both feeling and looking queer. In fact, there's nothing that keeps its youth, So far as I know, but a tree and truth.
This is a moral that runs at large; Take it. A general flavor of mild decay, But nothing local, as one may say. There couldn't be, — for the Deacon's art Had made it so like in every part That there was n't a chance for one to start. For the wheels were just as strong as the thills, And the floor was just as strong as the sills, And the panels just as strong as the floor, And the whipple-tree neither less nor more, And the back crossbar as strong as the fore, And spring and axle and hub encore.
And yet, as a whole, it is past a doubt In another hour it will be worn out! First of November, 'Fifty-five! This morning the parson takes a drive. Now, small bovs, get out of the way! Here comes the wonderful one-hoss shay, Drawn by a rat-tailed, ewe-necked bay. The parson was working his Sunday's text, — Had got to fifthly, and stopped perplexed At what the — Moses — was coming next. All at once the horse stood still, Close by the meet'n'-house on the hill.
W h a t do you thing the parson found, W h e n he got up and stared around? The poor old chaise in a heap or mound, As if it had been to the mill and ground! You see, of course, if you're not a dunce, How it went to pieces all at once, — All at once, and nothing first, — Just as bubbles do when they burst.
End of the wonderful one-hoss shay. Logic is logic. That's all I say. Ode for a Social Meeting With Slight Alterations by a Teetotaler Here is a little poem I sent a short time since to a committee for a certain celebration. I understood that it was to be a festive and convivial occasion, and ordered myself accordingly. It seems the president of the day was what is called a "teetotaler. The sentiments expressed with reference to liquor are not, however, those generally entertained by this community.
I have therefore consulted the clergyman of this place, who has made some slight changes, which he thinks will remove all objections, and keep the valuable portions of the poem. Please to inform me of your charge for said poem. Our means are limited, etc. How sweet is the breath of the fragrance they shed! For summer's last roses-lie hid in the wines stable-boys smoking long-nines. That were garnered by maidens who laughed thro' the vines?
For all the good wine, and we've some of it here! In cellar, in pantry, in attic, in hall, Down, down with the tyrant that masters us all! Long live the gay servant that laughs for us all! I not wonder much That he who sails the ocean should be sad. I am myself reflective. W h e n I think Of all this wallowing beast, the Sea, has sucked Between his sharp thin lips, the wedgy waves, W h a t heaps of diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls; W h a t piles of shekels, talents, ducats, crowns, W h a t bales of Tyrian mantles, Indian shawls, Of laces that have blanked the weavers' eyes, Of silken tissues, wrought by worm and man, The half-starved workman, and the well-fed worm; W h a t marbles, bronzes, pictures, parchments, books; W h a t many-lobuled, thought-engendering brains; Lie with the gaping sea-shells in his maw, — I, too, am silent; for all language seems A mockery, and the speech of man is vain.
O mariner, we look upon the waves And they rebuke our babbling. Tell me, O mariner, dost thou never feel The grandeur of thine office, — to control The keel that cuts the ocean like a knife And leaves a wake behind it like a seam In the great shining garment of the world? To the Captain. Ay, ay, Sir! Stiddy, Sir! What a world of merriment their melody foretells!
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle, In the icy air of night! II Hear the mellow wedding bells Golden bells! W h a t a world of happiness their harmony foretells! Through the balmy air of night How they ring out their delight! Oh, from out the sounding cells, W h a t a gush of euphony voluminously wells!
How it swells! How it dwells On the Future!

Ill Hear the loud alarum bells — Brazen bells! W h a t a tale of terror, now their turbulency tells! In the startled ear of night How they scream out their affright! Oh, the bells, bells, bells! W h a t a tale their terror tells Of Despair! How they clang, and clash, and roar! W h a t a horror they outpour On the bosom of the palpitating air! Yet the ear, it fully knows, By the twanging, And the clanging, How the danger ebbs and flows; Yet the ear distinctly tells, In the jangling, And the wrangling, How the danger sinks and swells, By the sinking or the swelling in the anger of the bells -— Of the bells — Of the bells, bells, bells, bells, Bells, bells, bells — In the clamor and the clanging of the bells!
IV Hear the tolling of the bells — Iron bells! W h a t a world of solemn thought their monody compels! In the silence of the night, How we shiver with affright At the melancholy menace of their tone! For every sound that floats From the rust within their throats Is a groan. And he dances, and he yells; Keeping time, time, time, In a sort of Runic rhyme, To the paean of the bells: — Of the bells: Keeping time, time, time In a sort of Runic rhyme, To the throbbing of the bells — Of the bells, bells, bells — To the sobbing of the bells: — Keeping time, time, time, As he knells, knells, knells, In a happy Runic rhyme, To the rolling of the bells — Of the bells, bells, bells: — To the tolling of the bells — Of the bells, bells, bells, bells, Bells, bells, bells — To the moaning and the groaning of the bells.
I make no apology; I've learned owl-eology. I've passed days and nights in a hundred collections, And cannot be blinded to any deflections Arising from unskilful fingers that fail To stuff a bird right, from his beak to his tail. Mister Brown! Do take that bird down, Or you'll soon be the laughing-stock all over town! He can't do it, because 'T is against all bird-laws. Anatomy teaches, Ornithology preaches An owl has a toe That can't turn out so!
I've made the white owl my study for years, And to see such a job almost moves me to tears! To look at that owl really brings on a dizziness; The man who stuffed him don't half know his business! I'm filled with surprise Taxidermists should pass Off on you such poor glass; So unnatural they seem They'd make Audubon scream, And John Burroughs laugh To encounter such chaff. Do take that bird down; Have him stuffed again, Brown! I could make an old hat Look more like an owl Than that horrid fowl, Stuck up there so stiff like a side of coarse leather.
In fact, about him there's not one natural feather. I'm an owl; you're another. Sir Critic, good-day! Jupiter and Ten Mrs.
Chub was rich and portly, Mrs. Chub was very grand, Mrs. Chub was always reckoned A lady in the land. You shall see her marble mansion In a very stately square, — Mr. Chub was so sagacious, Such a patron of the arts, And she gave such foreign orders, That she won all foreign hearts. Chub was always talking, When she went away from home, Of a prodigious painting Which had just arrived from Rome. Come to-morrow, gentlemen, Come and see our splendid painting, Our fine Jupiter and Ten. Chub departed, Our brains we all did rack, — She could not be mistaken, For the name was on the back.
But when we saw the picture, — Oh, Mrs. Oh, fie! We perused the printed label, And 't was Jupiter and Io! Lies eighteen centuries uneffaced, While many a page of bard and sage, Deemed once mankind's immortal gain, Lost from Time's ark, leaves no more mark Than a keel's furrow through the main. O Chance and Change! Too pressed to wait, upon her slate Fame writes a name or two in doubt; Scarce written, these no longer please, And her own ringer rubs them out: It may ensue, fair girl, that you Years hence this yellowing leaf may see, And put to task, your memory ask In vain, "This Lowell, who was he?
Zekle crep' up quite unbeknown An' peeked in thru' the winder, An' there sot Huldy all alone, 'Ith no one nigh to hender. A fireplace filled the room's one side W i t h half a cord o' wood in — There warn't no stoves tell comfort died To bake ye to a puddin'. The wa'nut logs shot sparkles out Towards the pootiest, bless her, An' leetle flames danced all about The chiny on the dresser.
Agin the chimbley crook-necks hung, An' in amongst 'em rusted The ole queen's-arm thet gran'ther Young Fetched back f'om Concord busted. The very room, coz she was in, Seemed warm f'om floor to ceilin', An' she looked full ez rosy agin Ez the apples she was peelin'. He was six foot o' man, A 1, Clear grit an' human natur', None couldn't quicker pitch a ton Nor dror a furrer straighter.
He'd sparked it with full twenty gals, He'd squired 'em, danced 'em, druv 'em, Fust this one, an' then thet, by spells — All is, he could n't love 'em. But long o' her his veins 'ould run All crinkly like curled maple, The side she breshed felt full o' sun Ez a south slope in Ap'il. She thought no v'ice hed sech a swing Ez hisn in the choir; My! An' she'd blush scarlit, right in prayer, W h e n her new meetin'-bunnet Felt somehow thru' its crown a pair O' blue eyes sot upon it.
Thet night, I tell ye, she looked some! She seemed to 've gut a new soul, For she felt sartin-sure he'd come, Down to her very shoe-sole. She heered a foot, an' knowed it tu, A-raspin' on the scraper, — All ways to once her feelins flew Like sparks in burnt-up paper. He kin' o' 1'itered on the mat Some doubtfle o' the sekle, His heart kep' goin' pity-pat, But hern went pity Zekle. I come dasignin' " — "To see my Ma?
She's sprinklin' clo'es Agin to-morrer's i'nin'. He stood a spell on one foot fust, Then stood a spell on t' other, An' on which one he felt the wust He could n't ha' told ye nuther.

W h e n Ma bimeby upon 'em slips, Huldy sot pale ez ashes, All kin' o' smily roun' the lips An' teary roun' the lashes.

The blood clost roun' her heart felt glued Too tight for all expressin', Tell mother see how metters stood, An' gin 'em both her blessin'. Homer Wilbur's "Festina Lente" Once on a time there was a pool Fringed all about withflag-leavescool And spotted with cow-lilies garish, Of frogs and pouts the ancient parish.
Alders the creaking redwings sink on, Tussocks that house blithe Bob o' Lincoln Hedged round the unassailed seclusion, Where muskrats piled their cells Carthusian; And many a moss-embroidered log, The watering-place of summer frog, Slept and decayed with patient skill, As watering-places sometimes will. Now in this Abbey of Theleme, Which realized the fairest dream That ever dozing bull-frog had, Sunned on a half-sunk lily-pad, There rose a party with a mission To mend the polliwogs' condition, Who notified the selectmen To call a meeting there and then.
That boy, that came the other day To dig some flag-root down this way, His jack-knife left, and 't is a sign That Heaven approves of our design: 'T were wicked not to urge the step on, When Providence has sent the weapon. You'd better let 'em try to grow: Old Doctor Time is slow, but still He does know how to make a pill. Too soon it came; our pool, so long The theme of patriot bull-frog's song, Next day was reeking, fit to smother, W i t h heads and tails that missed each other, — Here snoutless tails, there tailless snouts: The only gainers were the pouts.
In dreams they doze, the drowsy boors, Their hazy hovel warm and small: Thought's ampler bound But chill is found: Within low doors the basking boors Snugly hug the ember-mound. Sleepless, I see the slumberous boors Their blurred eyes blink, their eyelids fall: Thought's eager sight Aches — overbright! Within low doors the boozy boors Cat-naps take in pipe-bowl light. No flushful tint the sense to warm — Pure outline pale, a linear charm. The clear-cut hills carved temples face, Respond, and share their sculptural grace.
The Lover and the Syringa-Bush Like a lit-up Christmas Tree, Like a grotto pranked with spars, Like white corals in green sea, Like night's sky of crowded stars — To me like these you show, Syringa Such heightening power has love, believe, While here by Eden's gate I linger Love's tryst to keep, with truant Eve. The New Ancient of Days The man of bone confirms his throne In cave where fossils be; Outdating every mummy known, Not older Cuvier's mastodon, Nor older much the sea: Old as the Glacial Period, he; And claims he calls to mind the day W h e n Thule's king, by reindeer drawn, His sleigh-bells jingling in icy morn, Slid clean from the Pole to the Wetterhorn Over frozen waters in May!
Oh, the man of the cave of Engihoul, W i t h Eld doth he dote and drule? C ; But do-do tracks, all up and down That slate he poreth much upon, His algebra may be: — Yea, there he cyphers and sums it free; To ages ere Indus met ocean's swell Addeth aeons ere Satan or Saturn fell. His totals of time make an awful schism, And old Chronos he pitches adown the abysm Like a pebble down Carisbrook well. Yea, the man of the cave of Engihoul From Moses knocks under the stool. In bas-relief he late has shown A horrible show, agreed — Megalosaurus, iguanodon, Palagotherium Glypthaecon, A Barnum-show raree; The vomit of slimy and sludgey sea: Purposeless creatures, odd inchoate things Which splashed thro' morasses on fleshly wings; The cubs of Chaos, with eyes askance, Preposterous griffins that squint at Chance And Anarch's cracked decree!
Oh the showman who dens in Engihoul, Would he fright us, or quit us, or fool? But, needs to own, he takes a tone, Satiric on nobs, pardee! And why cut your kinsman the ape? I'll settle these parvenu fellows, he-he! Diluvian Jove of Ducalion's day — A parting take to the Phocene clay! He swears no Ens that takes a name Commensurate is with the vasty claim Of the protoplastic Fegee.
O, the spook of the cave of Engihoul He flogs us and sends us to school. Hyena of bone! But the ogre of bone he snickers alone, He grins for his godless glee: "I have flung my stone, my fossil stone, And your gods, how they scamper," saith he. Clear the way there Jonathan!
