More poetry from The Atlantic Monthly.
Whene'er a noble deed is wrought,
Whene'er is spoken a noble thought,
Our hearts, in glad surprise,
To higher levels rise.
The tidal wave of deeper souls
Honor to those whose words or deeds
Thus thought I, as by night I read
The wounded from the battle-plain,
Lo! in that house of misery
And slow, as in a dream of bliss,
As if a door in heaven should be
On England's annals, through the long
A lady with a lamp shall stand
Nor even shall be wanting here
