LOUIS UNTERMEYER
American poet and anthologist
(1885 - 1977)

From compromise and things half done,
  Keep me with stern and stubborn pride,
    And when at last the fight is won,
      God, keep me still unsatisfied.
      - Prayer [Prayer]

God, though this life is but a wraith,
  Although we know not what we use,
    Although we grope with little faith,
      Give me the heart to fight.
      - Prayer [Prayer]

The last flash . . . and the hideous attack
  Dies like a wisp of storm--discouraged flame;
    And soon these battered heroes will come back,
      The same but yet not the same.
      - Return of the Soldiers [Heroes]

Come, drink the mystic wine of Night,
  Brimming with silence and the stars;
    While earth, bathed in this holy light,
      Is seen without its scars.
      - The Wine of Night [Night]
