The Light of Unconscious Inspiration

We'll prove to thee that angels can from their celestial land,
Converse with those who linger still upon Time's rocky strand;
Can hover near to bless their hearts with words of Truth and Love,
And lift them to a closer walk with God and Heaven above.

We'll prove to thee that thou canst still in tones of eloquence,
Breathe forth thy noblest sentiments in Freedom's dear defence;
That thou canst visit still those Halls where much of life you spent,
And where the highest powers of mind in Justice's cause were lent!

Twelve Messages from the spirit of John Quincy Adams through Joseph D. Stiles, medium to Josiah Brigham, Bela Marsh Publishers, Boston, 1859
