PHILIP MORIN FRENEAU
American poet and journalist
(1752 - 1832)

With evil omens from the harbour sails
  The ill-fated ship that worthless Arnold bears;
    God of the southern winds, call up thy gales,
      And whistle in rude fury round his ears.
      - Arnold's Departure [Treason]

But matchless Franklin! What a few
  Can hope to rival such as you.
    Who seized from kings their sceptred pride
      And turned the lightning's darts inside.
      - On the Death of Benjamin Franklin
        [Electricity]

Then rush'd to meet the insulting foe;
  They took the spear, but left the shield.
      - To the Memory of the Brave Americans who fell at Eulaw Springs
        [Bravery]

O Washington! thrice glorious name,
  What due rewards can man decree--
    Empires are far below thy aim,
      And scepters have no charms for thee;
        Virtue alone has your regards,
          And she must be your great reward.
      - Washington's Arrival in Philadelphia
        [Washington, George]
