Topic:   AMERICA  


I am the refuge of all the oppressed,
I am the boast of the free,
I am the harbor where ships may rest
Safely 'twixt sea and sea.
I hold up a torch to a darkened world,
I lighten the path with its ray.
Let my hand keep steady
And let me be ready
For whatever comes my way --
Let me be ready.

Oh, better than lance or spear,
Are the loyal hearts of my daughters and sons,
Faithful and without fear.
But my daughters and sons must understand
That Attila did not die.
And they must be ready,
Their hands must be steady,
If the hosts of hell come nigh --
They must be ready.

I am the cradle of God's new world,
For me shall the new race rise,
And my glorious banner must float unfurled,
Unsullied against the skies.
My sons and daughters must be my strength,
With courage to do and to dare.
With hearts that are ready,
With hands that are steady,
And their slogan must be, Prepare!--
They must be ready!
-- Ella Wheeler Wilcox --
From: "America," Good Housekeeping (June 1916)

America will not turn back;
She did not idly start,
But weighed full carefully and well
Her grave, important part.
She chose the part of Freedom's friend,
And will pursue it, to the end.
-- Edna Wheeler Wilcox --
From: "America Will Not Turn Back" Hello, Boys!
London: Gay and Hancock, Ltd. (1918)
