Read Michelangelo of General William Booth enters into Heaven and other Poems, free online book, by Vachel Lindsay, on

  Would I might wake in you the whirl-wind soul
  Of Michelangelo, who hewed the stone
  And Night and Day revealed, whose arm alone
  Could draw the face of God, the titan high
  Whose genius smote like lightning from the sky
  And shall he mold like dead leaves in the grave? 
  Nay he is in us!  Let us dare and dare. 
  God help us to be brave.
