Henry O'Meara Ballads of America

Decoration

COLUMBIA THEATRE, BOSTON

TEMPLE new-graced within our Drama's pale,
Our histrion greeting sings "Columbia, Hail!"
Welcome to speak through deep theatric theme -
To realize the high dramatic dream.
Enlisting native thought upon the stage,
To share the playwright's laurels of the age -
To sound the claims ot this new Thespian day,
And voice the blended charms of Thalia's sway!
