And he said, “'Tis the only way to make The traitors flee before us; While the light it sheds will leave a wake That will shine when the sod grows o'er us.” I saw him again but the other night, And he shook my hand in greeting; And little he thought how soon I'd write, And tell the world of our meeting. The hand I clasped has swung the maul, And my own has written its s

And he said, “I'll paddle away, away, Till space shall flee before me; And I yet shall live to see the day When the Star of Fame shines o'er me.” I saw him again, with his musty books, A-pondering Coke and Story; And little there was in his homely looks To tell of his future glory.

The maul. by Mary E. Nealy. I saw a boy in a black-jack wood, With a tall, lank, awkward “figger,” Striking away with his heavy maul, By the side of a young slave , “nigger.” And he said to himself, “I'll maul away, And cleave a path before me; I'll hew all black jacks' out of my way, ‘Till the Star of Fame shines o'er me.” I saw him again on a broad swift stream; But the maul this time was a paddle, And I watched the tiny rainbow's gleam, As he made the waves skedaddle.
