s bond be riven, And all the Pleiad sisters fall from heaven! Lo! in the East an awful dream; and lo! Like a weird painting o'er the life below, Solemn and calm, with silence in their eyes, “Congress assembled” --watchers from yon skies! Above the storm, serene with high reproof, Sorrow, not anger — silence, shame, and love! Lo! from your sacred places rise the grand And haloed guardians of your hallowed land, Wherever lying, dust in earth, but yet Voices in council men may ne'er forget. Webster's calm looks the waves of discord sun; Words broken rise, “Now and for ever, one!” And over Ashland's folded sod forever A spirit rises, “Never! never! never!” A year ago were writ these pleading words, While the black skies throbbed full of prophet-birds, And (wraths world-old, whose maws have no remorse) Grim vultures wheeling for a nation's corse. These words, a year ago, I could but deem The haunting memory of some waking dream. The year has gone, and God's horizon still Flame
t the fell desires Of the base secession crew? Shall we let such knaves and traitors, Robbers, thieves, and freedom-haters, All our nation's great creators' Most successful work undo? No! By Washington and Wayne, Adams, Franklin, Lee, and Penn, All those brave, true-hearted men Who Freedom gained and Union gave us-- Up! and fight for Law and Order, Fight until the last marauder Ye have driven from your border, Who oppress and would enslave us! By that bright and proud array-- Patriot names of later day-- Jackson, Webster, Wirt, and Clay, Statesmen, orators, and sages-- Who have battled, “armed men strong,” For the right against the wrong, That their country loved might long Stand the hope of unborn ages. By the God of heaven above us, By the dear ones loved, who love us, By all motives pure that move us, The Hero's or the Martyr's crown-- We will never yield us, never, Till the fiends who seek to sever Our loved country are for ever And for evermore put down!
