(Initial Stress)

And thou, O, silent mountain, sole and bare,
O, blacker than the darkness, all the night,
And visited all night by troops of stars—
Or when they climb the sky, ( 1 ) or when they sink-
Companion of the morning star at dawn,
Thyself earth's rosy star, and of the dawn
Co-herald! wake, oh! wake and utter praise !
Ye ice falls ! ye that from your dizzy heights
Adown enormous ravines steeply slope,
Torrents, methinks, that heard a mighty noise,
And stopped at once amid their maddest plunge!
Motionless torrents! silent cataracts!
Who made you glorious as the gates of heaven,
Beneath the keen full moon ? Who bade the sun
Clothe

you

with rainbows? Who with flowers Of living blue spread garlands at your feet? GOD! GOD! the torrents like a shout of nations Utter: the ice-plain bursts and answers GOD.

Through the cloudy strife
Of death and of life;

Trembling at that where I had stood before.
When will return the glory of your prime ?
No more! oh, never more.

Though the dun fox and wild hyena call,
And owls that fit continually between
SHRIEK | to the echo, and the low winds moan;
There the true silence is self-conscious and alone.

A banner with the strange device,

“ Excelsior !"
And like a silver clarion rung-

“ Excelsior !"
And from his lips escaped a groan,

“ Excelsior!”
And loud that clarion voice replied,

« Excelsior!"
But still he answered, with a sigh,

“ Excelsior !"
A voice replied, far up the height,

“ Excelsior !"
A voice cried through the startled air,

“ Excelsior !”
That banner with the strange device,

“ Excelsior!”
A voice fell, like a falling star-

" Excelsior !"

Outshone the WEALTH of ORMUS and of Ind,
Or WHERE the gorgeous east, with richest hand
SHOWERS on her kings, BARBARIC pearls and gold,
SATAN exalted sat (Repeat).

Setting aside his high blood's royalty,
And let him be no kinsman to my liege.
I do DEFY him and I SPIT at him,
Call him-a slanderous coward, and a villain;
Which to maintain, I would allow him odds,
And meet him, were I tied to run a-foot,
Even to the frozen ridges of the Alps,
Or any other ground inhabitable,
Wherever Englishman durst set his foot.
Meantime let this defend my loyalty;
By all my hopes most falsely doth he LIE.

fainter, fainter still !
They stole, they stole, they stole my child away
They stole, they stole, they stole my child away!

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead !
0, when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger,
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favored rage;
Then lend to the eye a terrible aspect;
Aye, set the teeth and stretch the nostrils wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To its full height. ON! ON! you noble English,
Whose blood is set from fathers of war proof,
Cry, “ HEAVEN FOR HARRY, ENGLAND AND ST. GEORGE!”
