🌾 Today’s Poem ~ Defeat?

Defeat?

Francis William Lauderdale Adams

WHO is it speaks of defeat? β€”
I tell you a Cause like ours
Is greater than defeat can know;
It is the power of powers!
As surely as the earth rolls round,
As surely as the glorious sun
Follows the great world moon-wave,
Must our Cause be won!
What is defeat to us? β€”
Learn what a skirmish tells,
While the great Army marches on
To storm earth’s Hells!

  1. Ray, thank you so much for these poems! I love English poetry but always had trouble finding good ones that are not too long and relatively simple, the ones you post are and they are always a good read. Thanks, you make each of my days a little better with the stuff you post πŸ™‚
