Lydia Maria Child. (1802–1880)
 
 
1
    Pillars are fallen at thy feet,
  Fanes quiver in the air,
A prostrate city is thy seat,
  And thou alone art there.
          Marius amid the Ruins of Carthage.
2
    Genius hath electric power
  Which earth can never tame,
Bright suns may scorch and dark clouds lower,
  Its flash is still the same.
          Marius amid the Ruins of Carthage.
3
      England may as well dam up the waters of the Nile with bulrushes as to fetter the step of Freedom, more proud and firm in this youthful land than where she treads the sequestered glens of Scotland, or couches herself among the magnificent mountains of Switzerland.
          Supposititious Speech of James Otis. The Rebels, Chap. iv.
