TO JACOB MILLIKEN OF SCARBOROUGH, ME., ON HIS ONE

HUNDREDTH BIRTHDAY

BY MISS INA COOLBRITH.

To your patriarchal feast
In our country's farthest East,
I, a stranger, not a guest,
Greeting send from farthest West.

Somewhere, in some far-off line,
Blood of yours was blood of mine;
So they say. It matters not;
Since were we of alien race
Strange of color, tongue and face,
Kalmac, Tartar, Hottentot,
Mongol, Afric, Indian —
Trace the races he who can —
White, or black, or red, or brown.
Safe it is to write it down,
At the one great FatJier's knee,
Common children, all, are we.

So, my Kinsman, health and peace!
Can I say, "Your years increase,"
When the full threescore and ten
Meted unto common men —
Limit of the toil and strife,
The strange mystery called Life —
Long your steps have overpast?
Strange it is our thoughts to cast
Down a century's long track
In one lifetime looking back!

Why! when you first saw the light,

Scarcely how to wear aright

Her young freedom — strange and new

As this world of ours to you —

Did our maiden nation know.

You have seen her empire grow,
Rise of sun to set of sun,
Lands of fire and lands of snow.
Gathered, blended, one by one,
As the light of stars is blent
In one glorious firmament; —
Till our timid Princess towers
Queen above her sister powers.



POSTERITY OF EDWANP MIl.l.l k'EX. 7r>

You have seen her fair head bowed
Thrice beneath a bloody cloud;
Thrice triumphant, wear the crown
Of a (ianj^cr l)attlc<l down;
IMiriic her hands the sword release
Fur the lil)-blooms of peace.

Stranger yet — fulfilment bold

Of that wild, weird vision, told

By a wizard, burned of old

For his magic, — name it we

Rather his true prophecy, —

You have known; upon the sea

Sailless, oarlcss, ships to row;

Carriage without horse to go;

Man in air to move like bird;

Air to burn; and uttered word

At a thousand miles be heard;

Round the whole great globe a belt

Like a living pulse be felt;

Even the sun, — and this is worse, ^

Monarch of our Universe, —

Forced with artist's touch to trace

Portraits of our mortal race

Is the age of miracles

At an end, indeed, when still,

Day by day, and hour by hour,

Is unfolded some new power,

New, and yet as old as Time,

Waiting for the touch sublime,

Waiting but the master mind

To reveal it to mankind ?

Surely God is with the earth,

Now, as at her hour of birth;

Still he walks her gardens wide

Morning-time and evening-tide;

Clearly still His mighty word

By the listening ear is heard.

Man of years and silver hair,
Great the honor which you bear
In the "added length of days"
He has given. Give Him praise!

May that vast mysterious Will
Grant thee added blessings still
Everv hour that yet is thine
Link with mortal the divine,
Till thy hundred years shall be
Merged into eternity!
