  • Could we but look upon this curse aright,

    Mercy would hinder sleep until the blight

    Were wholly banished soon. O men of worth,

    Why art thou mute ? Why art thou mute, O earth ?

    The unabortive beast, the stones might rise,

    Rebuking human inconsistencies.

    --J. R. Ramsay, 1869, Win-on-ah: or The Forest Light, and Other Poems, p. 92
