William Ellery Channing. (1817–1901)
 
 
1
    I laugh, for hope hath happy place with me;
If my bark sinks, ’t is to another sea.
          A Poet’s Hope.
2
    I sing New England, as she lights her fire
In every Prairie’s midst; and where the bright
Enchanting stars shine pure through Southern night,
She still is there, the guardian on the tower,
To open for the world a purer hour.
          New England.
3
    Most joyful let the Poet be;
It is through him that all men see.
          The Poet of the old and new Times.
4
    My highway is unfeatured air,
  My consorts are the sleepless stars,
And men my giant arms upbear—
  My arms unstained and free from scars.
          Hymn of the Earth.
5
    A wail in the wind is all I hear;
  A voice of woe for a lover’s loss.
          Tears in Spring.
