In the high citadel of Fear


In the high citadel of Fear
A million subjects knelt before
The bronze throne of Fear.

Tentacles from that throne of Fear
How they moved like fork-tongued snakes
And increased Fear to previous Fear!

The waters gelid flowed and thawed
Before the frost at sunset visited:
For early were they touched by Fear.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
