Horatio Poem by Robert William Service

horatio poem

The strongest man I have ever seen A man a thousand men can not win He had the strength of Samson And the wisdom of Solomon He is the king of us all But he will not acknowledge that title Firm like Stalin When it is time to take a decision Never look back Takes no permission The true hero of the revolution Was Leon Trosky Washington of our time Deliver us from the Great Evil No matter where it may be Oh Superman! This delight in, and admiration of, the qualities his friend possesses is the fundamental reason why Hamlet confides in Horatio throughout the play. Then Ocnus of Falerii Rushed on the Roman three; And Lausulus of Urgo, The rover of the sea; And Aruns of Volsinium, Who slew the great wild boar,— The great wild boar that had his den Amidst the reeds of Cosa’s fen, And wasted fields, and slaughtered men, Along Albinia’s shore. ” And those before cried “Back! ” So he spake, and, speaking, sheathed The good sword by his side, And, with his harness on his back, Plunged headlong in the tide.

horatio poem

Evening and morn the Thirty Have turned the verses o’er, Traced from the right on linen white By mighty seers of yore; And with one voice the Thirty Have their glad answer given: “Go forth, go forth, Lars Porsena,— Go forth, beloved of Heaven! The horsemen and the footmen Are pouring in amain From many a stately market-place, From many a fruitful plain, From many a lonely hamlet, Which, hid by beech and pine, Like an eagle’s nest hangs on the crest Of purple Apennine: From lordly Volaterræ, Where scowls the far-famed hold Piled by the hands of giants For godlike kings of old; From sea-girt Populonia, Whose sentinels descry Sardinia’s snowy mountain-tops Fringing the southern sky; From the proud mart of Pisæ, Queen of the western waves, Where ride Massilia’s triremes, Heavy with fair-haired slaves; From where sweet Clanis wanders Through corn and vines and flowers, From where Cortona lifts to heaven Her diadem of towers.

Horatio Nelson A poem for kids Long ago there lived a boy, Horatio was his name. The Three stood calm and silent, and looked upon the foes, And a great shout of laughter from all the vanguard rose: And forth three chiefs came spurring before that deep array; To earth they sprang, their swords they drew, and lifted high their shields, and flew To win the narrow way; Aunus from green Tifernum, Lord of the Hill of Vines; And Seius, whose eight hundred slaves sicken in Ilva's mines; And Picus, long to Clusium vassal in peace and war, Who led to fight his Umbrian powers from that grey crag where, girt with towers, The fortress of Naquinum lowers o'er the pale waves of Nar.
