I sing New England, as she lights her fire
In every Prairie's midst; and where the bright
Enchanting stars shine pure through Southern night,
She still is there, the guardian on the tower,
To open for the world a purer hour.
Channing quotes
My highway is unfeatured air,
My consorts are the sleepless stars,
And men my giant arms upbear
My arms unstained and free from scars.
Channing
Most joyful let the Poet be;
It is through him that all men see.




A wail in the wind is all I hear;
A voice of woe for a lover's loss.
