THE STIRRUP-CUP, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Your eyes - and a thousand stars
Last Line: And where is the thing to defeat me!
Alternate Author Name(s): Lewis, Michael
Subject(s): Courage; Valor; Bravery

YOUR eyes—and a thousand stars
Leap from the night to aid me;
I scale the impossible bars,
I laugh at a world that dismayed me.

Your voice—and the thundering skies
Tremble and cease to appall me—
Coward no longer, I rise
Spurred for what battles may call me.

Your arms—and my purpose grows strong;
Your lips—and high passions complete me...
For your love, it is armor and Song—
And where is the thing to defeat me!
