Poem by Thomas Oldham (1816-1878)
Submitted by a Volunteer -- Thanks!
Epigram on hearing of the burning of Moscow
May European Liberty
In Moscow's flames her torch relume!
And Gallic Tyranny
In Moscow's ruins find a tomb!
* * * * *
Locke says the soul may slumber;
Lavater says the soul is seen
Reflected in the mien;
The last assertion true,
Proofs of the first we view
In faces without number.
