NUMBER:915
AUTHOR:George Meredith (1828–1909)
QUOTATION:We who have seen Italia in the throes,
Half risen but to be hurled to ground, and now,
Like a ripe field of wheat where once drove plough,
All bounteous as she is fair, we think of those
Who blew the breath of life into her frame:
Cavour, Mazzini, Garibaldi: Three:
Her Brain, her Soul, her Sword; and set her free
From ruinous discords, with one lustrous aim.
ATTRIBUTION:GEORGE MEREDITH, “For the Centenary of Garibaldi,” stanza 1, The Times (London), July 1, 1907, p. 9. This poem is also in Poems of George Meredith, ed. Phyllis B. Bartlett, p. 790 (1978).
SUBJECTS:Italy
