To My Country Analysis

Author: Poetry of Katharine Lee Bates Type: Poetry Views: 212

O dear my Country, beautiful and dear,

Love cloth not darken sight.

God looketh through Love's eyes, whose vision clear

Beholds more flaws than keenest Hate hath known.

Nor is Love's judgment gentle, but austere;

The heart of Love must break ere it condone

One stain upon the white.

There comes an hour when on the parent turns

The challenge of the child;

The bridal passion for perfection burns;

Life gives her last allegiance to the best;

Each sweet idolatry the spirit spurns,

Once more enfranchised for its starry quest

Of beauty undefiled.

Love must be one with honor; yet to-day

Love liveth by a sign;

Allows no lasting compromise with clay,

But tends the mounting miracle of gold,

Content with service till the bud make way

To the rejoicing sunbeams that unfold

Its culminant divine.

There is a rumoring among the stars,

A trouble in the sun.

Freedom, most holy word, hath fallen at jars

With her own deeds; 'tis Mammon's jubilee;

Again the cross contends with scimitars;

The seraphim look down with dread to see

Earth's noblest hope undone.

O dear my Country, beautiful and dear,

Ultimate dream of Time,

By all thy millions longing to revere

A pure, august, authentic commonweal,

Climb to the light. Imperiled Pioneer

Of Brotherhood among the nations, seal

Our faith with thy sublime.
