THOMAS CAMPBELL
Scottish poet
(1777 - 1844)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 4 of 4

Out spoke the victor then,
  As he hail'd them o'er the wave,
    Ye are brothers! ye are men!
      And we conquer but to save;
        So peace instead of death let us bring;
          But yield, proud foe, let us bring;
            With the crews, at England's feet,
              And make submission meet
                To our King.
      - The Battle of the Baltic [Victory]

Oh, leave this barren spot to me!
  Spare, woodman, space the beechen tree!
      - The Beech-Tree's Petition [Trees]

There came to the beach a poor Exile of Erin,
  The dew on his thin robe was heavy and chill;
    For his country he sigh'd, when at twilight repairing.
      To wander along by the wind-beaten hill.
        But the day star attracted his eyes' sad devotion,
          For it rose o'er his own native isle of the ocean,
            Where once in the fire of his youthful emotion
              He sang the bold anthem of Erin-go-bragh.
      - The Exile of Erin [Ireland : Love of Country]

On the green banks of Shannon, when Sheelah was nigh,
  No blithe Irish lad was so happy as I;
    No harp like my own could so cheerily play,
      And wherever I went was my poor dog Tray.
      - The Harper [Dogs]

Better be courted and jilted
  Than never be courted at all.
      - The Jilted Nymph [Wooing]

Never wedding, ever wooing,
  Still a lovelorn heart pursuing,
    Read you not the wrong you're doing
      In my cheek's pale hue?
        All my life with sorrow strewing;
          Wed or cease to woo.
      - The Maid's Remonstrance [Wooing]

The scented wild-weeds and enamell'd moss.
      - Theodric [Grass]

For there no yew nor cypress spread their glom
  But roses blossom'd each rustic tomb.
      - Theodric (l. 22) [Yew]

Triumphal arch, that fill'st the sky
  When storms prepare to part,
    I ask not proud Philosophy
      To teach me what thou art.
      - To the Rainbow [Rainbows]

United States, your banner wears
  Two emblems--one of fame;
    Alas! the other that it bears
      Reminds us of your shame.
        Your banner's constellation types
          White freedom with its stars,
            But what's the meaning of the stripes?
              They mean your negroes' scars.
      - To the United States of North America
        [Flags]

Britannia needs no bulwarks
  No towers along the steep;
    Her march is o'er the mountain wave,
      Her home is on the deep.
      - Ye Mariners of England [England : Possession]

The meteor flag of England.
      - Ye Mariners of England [Flags]

When the stormy winds do blow;
  When the battle rages loud and long,
    And the stormy winds do blow.
      - Ye Mariners of England [Wind]

Ye mariners of England!
  That guard our native seas;
    Whose flag has braved a thousand years,
      The battle and the breeze!
      - Ye Mariners of England [Flags]
