ADVENTURERS, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Seemingly over the hill-tops
Last Line: Sailing a dauntless sail.

SEEMINGLY over the hill-tops,
Possibly under the hills,
A tireless wing that never drops,
And a song that never stills.
Epics heard on the stars' lips?
Lyrics read in the dew? --
To sing the song at our finger-tips,
And live the world anew!
Cavaliers of the Cortes kind,
Bold and stern and strong, --
And, oh, for a fine and muscular mind
To sing a new-world's song!
Sailing seas of the silver morn,
Winds of the balm and spice,
To put the old-world art to scorn
At the price of any price!
Danger, death, but the hope high!
God's, if the propose fail!
Into the deeds of a vaster sky
Sailing a dauntless sail.
