Charles Mackay Poems

1.
If I Were A Voice

If I were a voice, a persuasive voice,
That could travel the wide world through,
I would fly on the beams of the morning light,
And speak to men with a gentle might,
And tell them to be true.
...

2.
The Miller Of Dee

There dwelt a miller, hale and bold,
Beside the river Dee;
He worked and sang from morn till night -
No lark more blithe than he;
...

3.
Eternal Justice

The man is thought a knave, or fool.
Or bigot, plotting crime,
Who, for the advancement of his kind.
Is wiser than his time.
...

4.
You Have No Enemies

YOU have no enemies, you say?
Alas! my friend, the boast is poor;
He who has mingled in the fray
...

5.
Light Is Love Without Esteem

Light is love without esteem.
Lighter than a feather,
But ours has borne
Contempt and scorn,
And sorrow's wintry weather!
...
