C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Coming
By Henry Howard Brownell (1820–1872)
 
(April, 1861)

WORLD, are thou ’ware of a storm?
    Hark to the ominous sound;
How the far-off gales their battle form,
    And the great sea-swells feel ground!
 
It comes, the Typhoon of Death—        5
    Nearer and nearer it comes!
The horizon thunder of cannon-breath
    And the roar of angry drums!
 
Hurtle, Terror sublime!
    Swoop o’er the Land to-day—        10
So the mist of wrong and crime,
The breath of our Evil Time
    Be swept, as by fire, away!
