HELEN GRAY CONE
American poet
(1859 - 1934)

A song of hate is a song of Hell;
  Some there be who sing it well.
    Let them sing it loud and long,
      We lift our hearts in a loftier song:
        We life our hearts to Heaven above,
          Singing the glory of her we love,
            England.
      - Chant of Love for England [Songs]

Bind her, grind her, burn her with fire,
  Cast her ashes into the sea,--
    She shall escape, she shall aspire,
      She shall arise to make men free;
        She shall arise in a sacred scorn,
          Lighting the lives that are yet unborn,
            Spirit supernal, splendor eternal,
              England!
      - Chant of Lover for England [England]

Upon a showery night and still,
  Without a sound of warning,
    A trooper band surprised the hill,
      And held it in the morning.
        We were not waked by bugle notes,
          No cheer our dreams invaded,
            And yet at dawn, their yellow coats
              On the green slopes paraded.
      - The Dandelions [Dandelions]
