The poem of the Universe

Charles Weldon
18-? - 1856


The Poem of the Universe

Nor rhythm has nor rhyme;

Some God recites the wondrous song

A stanza at a time.

Great deeds is he foredoom'd to do ---

With Freedom's flag unfurl'd ---

Who hears the echo of that song

As it goes down the world.

Great words he is compel'd to speak

Who understands the song:

He rises up like fifty men,

Fifty good men and strong.

A stanza for each century: ---

Now heed it, all who can !

Who hears it, he, and only he,

Is the elected man.
