Why lies the cross u 11 honored on th.y ground, While in mid-air thy stars and arrows flaunt'? That sheaf of darts, will it not fall unbound, Except, disrobed of thy vain earthly vaunt. Thou bring it to be blessed where saints and angels haunt?

Eastward, this hour, perchance thou turnest thine car, Listening if haply with the surging sea, Blend sounds of ruin from a land once dear To Heaven. O trying hour for tlioc !
