Strona 335 - Behind him lay the gray Azores, Behind the Gates of Hercules ; Before him not the ghost of shores, Before him only shoreless seas. The good mate said : " Now must we pray, For lo ! the very stars are gone. Brave Admiral, speak, what shall I say...
Strona 335 - The stout mate thought of home; a spray Of salt wave washed his swarthy cheek. "What shall I say, brave Admiral, say, If we sight naught but seas at dawn?" "Why. you shall say at break of day, 'Sail on ! sail on ! sail on ! and on !' " They sailed and sailed, as winds might blow, Until at last the blanched mate said : "Why, now not even God would know Should I and all my men fall dead. These very winds forget their way, For God from these dread seas is gtme. Now speak, brave Admiral, speak and say"...
Strona 336 - Sail on! sail on! sail on! and on! " Then, pale and worn, he kept his deck, And peered through darkness. Ah, that night Of all dark nights! And then a speck — A light! A light! A light! A light! It grew, a starlit flag unfurled! It grew to be Time's burst of dawn. He gained a world; he gave that world Its grandest lesson:
Strona 24 - Tenncsseean set His breast against the bayonet ! In vain Virginia charged and raged, A tigress in her wrath uncaged, Till all the hill was red and wet ! Above the bayonets, mixed and crossed, Men saw a gray, gigantic ghost, Receding through the...

Strona 33 - I advanced! That sentry, Doctor, was Elijah Ballantyne! First of all to fall on Monday, after we had formed the line ! ' Welcome, my old Sergeant, welcome ! Welcome by that countersign!' And he pointed to the scar there, under this old cloak of mine ! "As he grasped my hand, I shuddered, thinking only of the grave ; But he smiled and pointed upward with a bright and bloodless glaive : 'That's the way, sir, to Head-quarters.
Strona 336 - Sail on ; sail on ; and on." They sailed. They sailed. Then spake the mate: " This mad sea shows his teeth to-night. He curls his lip, he lies in wait, With lifted teeth, as if to bite. Brave Adm'r'l, say but one good word: What shall we do when hope is gone ? " The words leapt like a leaping sword: Sail on; sail on; sail on; and on.
Strona 337 - The bravest battle that ever was fought! Shall I tell you where and when ? On the maps of the world you will find it not : 'Twas fought by the mothers of men.
Strona 31 - Doctor Austin, — what day is this ? " " It is Wednesday night, you know." " Yes, to-morrow will be New Year's, and a right good time below. What time is it, Doctor Austin ? " " Nearly twelve." " Then, don't you go ! Can it be that all this happened — all this — not an hour ago ? " There was where the gunboats opened on the dark rebellious host, And where Webster semi-circled his last guns upon the coast ; There were still the two...
Strona 288 - At the childish boasts of human might, And the pride of human power ! When I saw an army upon the land, A navy upon the seas, Creeping along, a snail-like band, Or waiting the wayward breeze ; When I marked the...
