COMING (APRIL, 1861), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: World, art thou 'ware of a storm?
Last Line: Be swept, as by fire, away!
Subject(s): American Civil War; United States - History; War

WORLD, art thou 'ware of a storm?
Hark to the ominous sound;
How the far-off gales their battle form,
And the great sea-swells feel ground!

It comes, the Typhoon of Death --
Nearer and nearer it comes!
The horizon thunder of cannon-breath
And the roar of angry drums!

Hurtle, Terror sublime!
Swoop o'er the Land to-day --
So the mist of wrong and crime,
The breath of our Evil Time
Be swept, as by fire, away!
