CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS, by             Poet's Biography

Last Line: New lands for conquering love.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Columbus, Christopher (1451-1506); Explorers; Exploring; Discovery; Discoverers


With faith unshadowed by the night,
Undazzled by the day,
With hope that plumed thee for the flight,
And courage to assay,
God sent thee from the crowded ark,
Christ-bearer, like the dove,
To find, o'er sundering waters dark,
New lands for conquering love.
