To Any Poet
By Padraic Colum
BELOW there are white-faced throngs:
Their march is a tide coming nigher;
Below there are white-faced throngs:
Their faith is a banner flung higher.
Below there are white-faced throngs,        5
White swords they have yet, but red songs;
Place and lot they have lost—hear you not?—
For a dream you once dreamed, and forgot!
