Come, O Guide Of The Age


Come, O guide of the age,
The fearless and the bold.
Come, O the eternally beautiful,
The serene and the confident;
I sing your victory.
Come, O hero.
The raised thunder.
Come, O the unconquerable,
The cruel and the arrogant,
I sing your victory.

O the healer of the sorrows
Of dumb millions,
Wake up.
O the leader of the age;
I sing your victory,
I welcome you.

Listen to the healirending cries over there
Come, O the severer of fetters.
The child is awakening,
The child is seeking light
Come, O the rising sun,
I sing your victory,
You I welcome.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
