Spring Song - Poem by Charles Mackay

If I were a voice, a persuasive voice, That could travel the wide world through, I would fly on the beams of the morning light, And speak to men with a gentle might, And tell them to be true. I'd fly, I'd fly, o'er land and sea, Wherever a human heart might be, Telling a tale, or singing a song, In praise of the right - in blame of the wrong. I'd fly, I'd fly, o'er the crowded town, And drop, like the happy sun-light, down Into the hearts of suffering men, And teach them to rejoice again. If I were a voice, a convincing voice, I'd travel with the wind, And whenever I saw the nations torn By warfare, jealousy, or scorn, If I were a voice, a convincing voice, I 'd travel with the wind, And whenever I saw the nations torn By warfare, jealousy, or scorn, Or hatred of their kind, I'd fly, I'd fly, on the thunder-crash, And into their blinded bosoms flash; And, all their evil thoughts subdued, I'd teach them Christian Brotherhood. If I were a voice, a pervading voice, I'd seek the kings of Earth; I'd find them alone on their beds at night And whisper words that should guide them right Lessons of priceless worth; I'd fly more swift than the swiftest bird, And tell them things they never heard Truths which the ages for aye repeat Unknown to the statesmen at their feet.

I'd fly, I'd fly, o'er land and sea, Wherever a human heart might be, Telling a tale, or singing a song, In praise of the right - in blame of the wrong. I'd fly, I'd There dwelt a miller, hale and bold, Beside the river Dee; He worked and sang from morn till night - No lark more blithe than he; And this the burden of his song Forever used to be: 'I envy nobody - no, not I - And nobody envies me!

His fame, however, chiefly rests upon his songs, some of which, including Cheer, Boys, Cheer, were in set to music by Henry Russell, and had an astonishing popularity. My poems 10 Titles list. The Miller Of Dee There dwelt a miller, hale and bold, Beside the river Dee; He worked and sang from morn till night - No lark more blithe than he; And this the burden of his song Forever used to be: "I envy nobody - no, not I - And nobody envies me! And tell me now, what makes thee sing, With voice so loud and free, While I am sad, though I am king, Beside the river Dee? I Have Lived and I Have Loved I have lived and I have loved; I have waked and I have slept; I have sung and I have danced; I have smiled and I have wept; I have won and wasted treasure; I have had my fill of pleasure; And all these things were weariness, And some of them were dreariness;-- And all these things, but two things, Were emptiness and pain: And Love--it was the best of them; And Sleep--worth all the rest of them, Worth everything but Love to my spirit and my brain. But still my friend, O Slumber, Till my days complete their number, For Love shall never, never return to me again!
