The Victory (1872)….an anonymous tribute to Samuel Morse.
But one morning he made a slender wire.Taken from Tom Standage’s The Victorian Internet
As an artist’s vision took life and form.
While he drew from heaven the strange, fierce fire
That reddens the edge of the midnight storm;
And he carried it over the Mountain’s crest,
And dropped it into the Ocean’s breast;
And Science proclaimed, from shore to shore,
That Time and Space ruled man no more.
