    The late Dr. J. Vernon McGee quoted a poem by Sydney Lanier in his sermon. I'm unable to recognize in listed poems which poem quote was taken from. Can anyone help me?
    The following line is qujoted from aLanier's poem: Where are the strong arms in which I too might lay me in repose and yet be full of the fire of life
    Thank you

    What a find! I discovered Sidney Lanier yesterday and so have a new old poet to delve into. Also his The Science of poetry, or maybe it was verse.

    Good afternoon! i am so proud to read a poem like the sunrise song, because to me it proves a point that it is my time to rule the world! Hence, i can because anything is possible according to my own point of view. Have a nice day!

Contralto cadences of grave desire
Such as from off the passionate Indian pyre
