KTMS Poem rms written by Marjorie Lovell and read by her at
Throughout all time and e'er the dawn of day,
The self same light has lit the souls of men,
The self same sword has brought them through the fray
The self same power makes heroes now, as then.
Persistence is that fire we ought to fan,
Persistence is that sword we ought to wield,
Persistence is that power within a man
That goads him on and suffers none to yield.
Ten years did royal Odysseus, long-tried, seek
His much loved native land and loyal wife.
The swelling seas tossed high and winds did shriek,
Yet on he sailed and battled on for life.
Like some great bird, who, flying straight,
ls buffeted and blown by sudden gales
And gives not up his flight nor moans his fate,
But, struggling on against the wind, prevails.
And Moses, Giver of the Law, was one
Who, though he disappointments suffered long,
Yet turned not back from tasks he had begun,
But onward led steadfastly with a song.
Joan of Arc, fair warrior-maid revered,
Led on by saintly voices, visions rare,
Who neither death nor darksome dungeons feared,
Gave France her glory 'midst the trumpet's blare.
Undaunted, on wrote Milton to the close,
To Grief and Sorrow paying heavy toll,
Yet bearing under Heaven's will his woes
For him all pain of flesh was food for soul.
Columbus braved a vast, an unknown sea
To mutinous men he cried, "Sail on and on."
And on he sailed through dangers dread and dree.
Ah! surely joy will come with early dawn!
And thus it's been with men in every age,
And now it is with men who seek success
"Sail on," has said the Sybil, "On," the sage.
These words propel the ship that would progress.
This is the grandest lesson in the world:
With soul ablaze and sword of courage drawn,
The banner of persistence high, unfurled,
Be dauntless, daring, Friends, sail on and on!”
