Poetry. MAN'S TWO ATTENDANT ANGELS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 30 January 1862

MAN' S TWO ATTENDANT ANGELS MAN hath two attendant angels Ever waiting at his side,   With him wheresoe'er he wanders, Whereso'er his feet abide :   One to warn him when be darkleth, And rebuke him if he stray One to leave hin to his nature And so let him go his way. To recording spirits, reading   All his life's minutest part,   Looking in his soul, and listening To the beatings of his heart: Each, with pen of fire electric, Writes the good or evil wrought 'Writes with truth that adds not, errs not, Purpose, action, word and thought. One, the teacher and Reprover, Marks each heaven-deserving deed -- Graves it with the lightning's vigour;   Seals it with the lightning's speed ; For the good that man achieveth Good beyond an angel's doubt-- Such remains for aye and ever, And cannot be blotted out. One (severe and silent watcher!) Noteth every crime and guile, Writes itt with a holy duty Seals it not, but waits awhile; I...
