In Storm and Stress

From the New York Tribune, March 30, 1913.
 By W. J. Lampton.
 

 How weak is man when nature’s wrath
 Pours out itself upon his path,
 And with the storm and fire and flood
 Exacts the price of goods and blood,
 To leave him stricken, sick and sore
 Bereft of people, home and store.
 And yet how strong is man—the blow
 That falls in one place starts the flow
 Of helpfulness from everywhere,
 With open hands and saving care.
 The speedy answer to the call
 Of loss and sorrow, and from all
 Come hope and courage which uplift
 The faltering head among the drift.
 Which put new life in living when
 The fallen shall arise again.
 How strong is man when nature’s wrath
 Pours out itself upon his path!
