Three Poems about St. Francis On his Feast Day

 
 

ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI
Vachel Lindsay
(1879-1931)

 

*** Books by Vachel Lindsay

 
Would I might wake St. Francis in you all,
Brother of birds and trees, God’s Troubadour,
Blinded with weeping for the sad and poor;
Our wealth undone, all strict Franciscan men,
Come, let us chant the canticle again
Of mother earth and the enduring sun.
God make each soul the lonely leper’s slave;
God make us saints, and brave.
