On what ground you base your hopes!
Does an endless line of failures
Warrant brighter horoscopes?
"Discouragement" by John Lawson Stoddard

But wealth and pride ennobles
As cruel were as they are base,
And jeer'd me in my troubles.

Chase from her soil the tyrant hound,
And free her sons in shackles bound,
Or lay them free beneath her sand:
That would my Father-land.
