Excerpt: ...given again, For this is the law and it holdeth no flaw, the law of the forest to learn, THE SONG OF THE KENNEBEC 79 Who the forest shall smite, be it wrong, be it right, the forest small smite in return. So I bring ye my woe on my lethal flow, the forms my wet lips have kiss'd, In the spectral gleams of the moon's cold beams and the shroud of the evening mist, Like a wraith of their doom it steals o'er the boom to cover the martyrs of gain, But my free spirit still and my unconquer'd will ye shall shackle and harness in vain.
