CALLING DREAMS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The right to make my dreams come true
Last Line: And stride into the morning-break!
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John

The right to make my dreams come true
I ask, nay, I demand of life,
Nor shall fate's deadly contraband
Impede my steps, nor countermand.

Too long my heart against the ground
Has beat the dusty years around,
And now, at length, I rise, I wake!
And stride into the morning-break!
