Above The Earth And Sky

In all the land there is no poem of worth
That speaks of man above the sky and earth.
Then shout, inventors; merchants, give deep voice!
Let all the world hear virtue of your choice!
Let thinking men and women grasp and praise
The high creative prowess of your days!
Let universal joy begin to be
When all your works are branded Majesty!
But most, when artists great do take the stage
To send their heroes blazing through the age,
Made strong with beauty’s all-unvanquished eyes,
Inspiring men to stiffen backs, and rise
Up proud for their own good, that say they can,
“Above the earth and sky I am a man!”
