GOLDENROD, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: As israel in days of old

Subject(s): Goldenrod

AS Israel, in days of old,
Beneath the prophet's rod,
Amid the waters, backward rolled,
A path triumphant trod;
So, while thy lifted staff appears,
Her pilgrim steps to guide,
The Autumn journeys on, nor fears
The Winter's threatening tide.
