Come, gentle peace, with smiling ray,
Beam on our land a cloudless day,
Beneath thy influence serene,
The oliver wears immortal green.
Come. gentle peace, resume thy reign,
With all thy virtues in thy train,
And then Columbia's soil shall grow
As verdant Paradise below.
-- Esther Talbot, Stoughton, MA, 1814
