General William Booth enters into Heaven, and other poems/St. Francis of Assisi
ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI
WOULD I might wake St. Francis in you all,
Brother of birds and trees, God's Troubadour,
Blinded with weeping for the sand and poor;
Our wealth undone, all strict Franciscan men,
Come, let us chant the canticle again
Of mother earth and the enduring sun.
God make each soul the lonely leper's slave;
God make us saints, and brave.
