PO E T R Y.

THE CURSE OF PEACE.

(From " Maud," by Alfred Tennyson, D.C.L., Poet Laureate.)

Why do they prate of the blessings of Peace ? we have made them a

curse, Pickpockets, each hand lusting for all that is not its own; And lust of gain, in the spirit of Cain, is it better or worse Than the heart of the citizen hissing in war on his own hearthstone ? But these are the days of advance, the works of the men of mind, When who but a fool would have faith in a tradesman's ware or his

word ? Is it peace or war ? Civil war, as I think, and that of a kind The viler, as underhand, not openly bearing the sword. Sooner or later I too may passively take the print Of the golden age—why not? I have neither hope nor trust; May make my heart as a millstone, set my face as a flint, Cheat and be cheated, and die: who knows? we are ashes and dust.

Peace sitting under her olive, and slurring the days gone by,
When the poor are hovell’d and hustled together, each sex, like swine.
When only the ledger lives, and when only not all men lie;
Peace in her vineyard-yes !--but a company forges the wine.
And the vitriol madness flushes up in the ruffian's head,
Till the filthy by-lane rings to the yell of the trampled wife,
While chalk and alum and plaster are sold to the poor for bread,
And the spirit of murder works in the very means of life.
And Sleep must lie down arm'd, for the villainous centre-bits
Grind on the wakeful ear in the hush of the moonless nights,
While another is cheating the sick of a few last gasps, as he sits
To pestle a poison'd poison behind his crimson lights.

When a Mammonite mother kills her babe for a burial fee,
And Timour-Mammon grins on a pile of children's bones,
Is it peace or war? better, war! loud war by land and by sea,
War with a thousand battles, and shaking a hundred thrones

For I trust if an enemy's fleet came yonder round by the hill,
And the rushing battle-bolt sang from the three-decker out of the

foam, That the smooth faced snub nosed rogue would leap from his counter

and till, And strike, if he could, were it but with his cheating yardwand, home.

THE BLESSINGS OF WAR.

[ocr errors]

It was but a dream, yet it yielded a dear delight
To have look'd, tho’ but in a dream, upon eyes so fair,
That had been in a weary world my one thing bright;
And it was but a dream, yet it lighten'd my despair
When I thought that a war would arise in defence of the right,
That an iron tyranny now should bend or cease,
The glory of manhood stand on his ancient height,
Nor Britain's one sole God be the millionaire :
No more shall commerce be all in all, and Peace
Pipe on her pastoral hillock a languid note,
And watch her harvest ripen, her herd increase,
Nor the cannon-bullet rust on a slothful shore,
And the cobweb woven across the cannon's throat,
Shall shake its threaded tears in the wind no more.
And as months ran on and rumour of battle grew,
• It is time, it is time, O passionate heart,' said I
(For I cleaved to a cause that I felt to be pure and true),
It is time, O passionate heart and morbid

eye, That old hysterical mock-disease should die.' And I stood on a giant deck and mix'd my

breath
With a loyal people shouting a battle cry,
Till I saw the dreary phantom arise and fly
Far into the North, and battle, and seas of death.
Let it go or stay, so I wake to the higher aims
Of a land that has lost for a little her lust of gold,
And love of a peace that was full of wrongs and shames,
Horrible, hateful, monstrous, not to be told;
And hail once more to the banner of battle uproli'd !
Tho' many a light shall darken, and many shall weep
For those that are crush'd in the clash of jarring claims,
Yet God's just doom shall be wreak'd on a giant liar;
And many a darkness into the light shall leap,
And shine in the sudden making of splendid names,
And noble thought be freer under the sun,
And the heart of a people beat with one desire ;
For the long, long canker of peace is over and done.
And now by the side of the Black and the Baltic deep,
And deathful-grinning mouths of the fortress, flames
The blood-red blossom of war with a heart of fire.

THE DYING WIFE'S ADDRESS TO HER HUSBAND.

From "Men and Women." By Robert Browning.

I.

My love, this is the bitterest, that thou
Who art all truth and who dost love me now

As thine eyes say, as thy voice breaks to say-
Shouldst love so truly and couldst love me still
A whole long life through, had but love its will,

Would death that leads me from thee brook delay!

II.

I have but to be by thee, and thy hand
Would never let mine go, thy heart withstand

The beating of my heart to reach its place.
When should I look for thee and feel thee gone ?
When cry for the old comfort and find none ?
Never, I know! Thy soul is in thy face.

III.
Oh, I should fade— 'tis willed so! might I save,
Gladly I would, whatever beauty gave

Joy to thy sense, for that was precious too.
It is not to be granted. But the soul
Whence the love comes, all ravage leaves that whole;

Vainly the flesh fades-soul makes all things new.

IV.

And 't would not be because my eye grew dim
Thou could'st not find the love there, thanks to Him

Who never is dishonoured in the spark
He gave us from his fire of fires, and bade
Remember whence it sprang, nor be afraid

While that burns on, though all the rest grow dark.

V.

So, how thou would'st be perfect, white and clean
Outside as inside, soul and soul's demesne

Alike, this body given to show it by!
Oh, three-parts through the worst of life's abyss,
What plaudits from the next world after this,

Couldst thou repeat a stroke and gain the sky!

VI.
And is it not the bitterer to think
That, disengage our hands and thou wilt sink

Although thy love was love in very deed ?
I know that nature! Pass a festive day
Thou dost not throw its relic-florer away

Nor bid its music's loitering echo speed.
