344. A Stanza on Freedom
 
By James Russell Lowell
 
 
THEY are slaves who fear to speak
For the fallen and the weak;
They are slaves who will not choose
Hatred, scoffing, and abuse,
Rather than in silence shrink        5
From the truth they needs must think;
They are slaves who dare not be
In the right with two or three.
