Additional Poems By Vachel Lindsay Essay, Research Paper


(To a Man who maintained that the Mausoleum is the Stateliest Possible Manner of


I would be one with the dark, dark earth:–

Follow the plough with a yokel tread.

I would be part of the Indian corn,

Walking the rows with the plumes o’erhead.

I would be one with the lavish earth,

Eating the bee-stung apples red:

Walking where lambs walk on the hills;

By oak-grove paths to the pools be led.

I would be one with the dark-bright night

When sparkling skies and the lightning wed–

Walking on with the vicious wind

By roads whence even the dogs have fled.

I would be one with the sacred earth

On to the end, till I sleep with the dead.

Terror shall put no spears through me.

Peace shall jewel my shroud instead.

I shall be one with all pit-black things

Finding their lowering threat unsaid:

Stars for my pillow there in the gloom,–

Oak-roots arching about my head!

Stars, like daisies, shall rise through the earth,

Acorns fall round my breast that bled.

Children shall weave there a flowery chain,

Squirrels on acorn-hearts be fed:–

Fruit of the traveller-heart of me,

Fruit of my harvest-songs long sped:

Sweet with the life of my sunburned days

When the sheaves were ripe, and the apples red.

"Bring me soft song," said Aladdin.

"This tailor-shop sings not at all.

Chant me a word of the twilight,

Of roses that mourn in the fall.

Bring me a song like hashish

That will comfort the stale and the sad,

For I would be mending my spirit,

Forgetting these days that are bad,

Forgetting companions too shallow,

Their quarrels and arguments thin,

Forgetting the shouting Muezzin:"–

"I AM YOUR SLAVE," said the Jinn.

"Bring me old wines," said Aladdin.

"I have been a starved pauper too long.

Serve them in vessels of jade and of shell,

Serve them with fruit and with song:–

Wines of pre-Adamite Sultans

Digged from beneath the black seas:–

New-gathered dew from the heavens

Dripped down from Heaven’s sweet trees,

Cups from the angels’ pale tables

That will make me both handsome and wise,

For I have beheld her, the princess,

Firelight and starlight her eyes.

Pauper I am, I would woo her.

And–let me drink wine, to begin,

Though the Koran expressly forbids it."

"I AM YOUR SLAVE," said the Jinn.

"Plan me a dome," said Aladdin,

"That is drawn like the dawn of the MOON,

When the sphere seems to rest on the mountains,

Half-hidden, yet full-risen soon."

Build me a dome," said Aladdin,"

That shall cause all young lovers to sigh,

The fullness of life and of beauty,

Peace beyond peace to the eye–

A palace of foam and of opal,

Pure moonlight without and within,

Where I may enthrone my sweet lady."

"I AM YOUR SLAVE," said the Jinn.

(In Springfield, Illinois)

It is portentous, and a thing of state

That here at midnight, in our little town

A mourning figure walks, and will not rest,

Near the old court-house pacing up and down,

Or by his homestead, or in shadowed yards

He lingers where his children used to play,

Or through the market, on the well-worn stones

He stalks until the dawn-stars burn away.

A bronzed, lank man! His suit of ancient black,

A famous high top-hat and plain worn shawl

Make him the quaint great figure that men love,

The prairie-lawyer, master of us all.

He cannot sleep upon his hillside now.

He is among us:–as in times before!

And we who toss and lie awake for long

Breathe deep, and start, to see him pass the door.

‘His head is bowed. He thinks on men and kings.

Yea, when the sick world cries, how can he sleep?

Too many peasants fight, they know not why,

Too many homesteads in black terror weep.

The sins of all the war-lords burn his heart.

He sees the dreadnoughts scouring every main.

He carries on his shawl-wrapped shoulders now

The bitterness, the folly and the pain.

He cannot rest until a spirit-dawn

Shall come;–the shining hope of Europe free:

The league of sober folk, the Workers’ Earth,

Bringing long peace to Cornland, Alp and Sea.

It breaks his heart that kings must murder still,

That all his hours of travail here for men

Seen yet in vain. And who will bring white peace

That he may sleep upon his hill again?

A curse upon each king who leads his state,

No matter what his plea, to this foul game,

And may it end his wicked dynasty,

And may he die in exile and black shame.

If there is vengeance in the Heaven of Heavens,

What punishment could Heaven devise for these

Who fill the rivers of the world with dead,

And turn their murderers loose on all the seas!

Put back the clock of time a thousand years,

And make our Europe, once the world’s proud Queen,

A shrieking strumpet, furious fratricide,

Eater of entrails, wallowing obscene

In pits where millions foam and rave and bark,

Mad dogs and idiots, thrice drunk with strife;

While Science towers above;–a witch, red-winged:

Science we looked to for the light of life,

Curse me the men who make and sell iron ships

Who walk the floor in thought, that they may find

Each powder prompt, each steel with fearful edge,

Each deadliest device against mankind.

Curse me the sleek lords with their plumes and spurs,

May Heaven give their land to peasant spades,

Give them the brand of Cain, for their pride’s sake,

And felon’s stripes for medals and for braids.

Curse me the fiddling, twiddling diplomats,

Haggling here, plotting and hatching there,

Who make the kind world but their game of cards,

Till millions die at turning of a hair.

What punishment will Heaven devise for these

Who win by others’ sweat and hardihood,

Who make men into stinking vultures’ meat,

Saying to evil still "Be thou my good"?

Ah, he who starts a million souls toward death

Should burn in utmost hell a million years!

–Mothers of men go on the destined wrack

To give them life, with anguish and with tears:–

Are all those childbed sorrows sneered away?

Yea, fools laugh at the humble christenings,

And cradle-joys are mocked of the fat lords:

These mothers’ sons made dead men for the Kings!

All in the name of this or that grim flag,

No angel-flags in all the rag-array–

Banners the demons love, and all Hell sings

And plays wild harps. Those flags march forth to-day!

[To be sung to the tune of The Blood of the Lamb with indicated instrument]


[Bass drum beaten loudly.]

BOOTH led boldly with his big bass drum –

(Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?)

The Saints smiled gravely and they said: "He’s come."

(Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?)

Walking lepers followed, rank on rank,

Lurching bravoes from the ditches dank,

Drabs from the alleyways and drug fiends pale —

Minds still passion-ridden, soul-powers frail: —

Vermin-eaten saints with mouldy breath,

Unwashed legions with the ways of Death —

(Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?)


Every slum had sent its half-a-score

The round world over. (Booth had groaned for more.)

Every banner that the wide world flies

Bloomed with glory and transcendent dyes.

Big-voiced lasses made their banjos bang,

Tranced, fanatical they shrieked and sang: —

"Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?"

Hallelujah! It was queer to see

Bull-necked convicts with that land make free.

Loons with trumpets blowed a blare, blare, blare

On, on upward thro’ the golden air!

(Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?)


[Bass drum slower and softer.]

Booth died blind and still by Faith he trod,

Eyes still dazzled by the ways of God.

Booth led boldly, and he looked the chief

Eagle countenance in sharp relief,

Beard a-flying, air of high command

Unabated in that holy land.

[Sweet flute music.]

Jesus came from out the court-house door,

Stretched his hands above the passing poor.

Booth saw not, but led his queer ones there

Round and round the mighty court-house square.

Yet in an instant all that blear review

Marched on spotless, clad in raiment new.

The lame were straightened, withered limbs uncurled

And blind eyes opened on a new, sweet world.

[Bass drum louder.]

Drabs and vixens in a flash made whole!

Gone was the weasel-head, the snout, the jowl!

Sages and sibyls now, and athletes clean,

Rulers of empires, and of forests green!

[Grand chorus of all instruments. Tambourines to the foreground.]

The hosts were sandalled, and their wings were fire!

(Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?)

But their noise played havoc with the angel-choir.

(Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?)

O, shout Salvation! It was good to see

Kings and Princes by the Lamb set free.

The banjos rattled and the tambourines

Jing-jing-jingled in the hands of Queens.

[Reverently sung, no instruments.]

And when Booth halted by the curb for prayer

He saw his Master thro’ the flag-filled air.

Christ came gently with a robe and crown

For Booth the soldier, while the throng knelt down.

He saw King Jesus. They were face to face,

And he knelt a-weeping in that holy place.

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

from General William Booth Enters into Heaven and other poems (1916).
