EDWIN MARKHAM
American poet and lecturer
(1852 - 1940)

All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.
      - [Charity]

The crest and crowning of all good,
  Life's final star, is Brotherhood.
      - Brotherhood [Goodness]

When the Norn-mother saw the Whirlwind Hour,
  Greatening and darkening as it hurried on,
    She bent the strenuous Heavens and came down
      To make a man to meet the mortal need.
        She took the tried clay of the common road--
          Clay warm yet with the genial heat of Earth,
            Dashed through it all a strain of prophecy;
              Then mixed a laughter with the serious stuff.
                It was a stuff to wear for centuries,
                  A man that matched the mountains, and compelled
                    The stars to look our way and honor us.
      - Lincoln, The Man of the People
        [Lincoln, Abraham]

Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans
  Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground,
    The emptiness of ages in his face,
      And on his back the burden of the world.
      - The Man with the Hoe,
        written after seeing Millet's picture "Angelus"
        [Labor]
