Roden Noel, by George Richmond

Roden Berkeley Wriothesley Noel (August 27, 1834May 26, 1894), also known as Noël, was an English poet.


  • With whisper of her mellowing grain,
    With treble of brook and bud and tree,
    Earth joys for ever to sustain
    The bass eternal of the sea.
    • "Beatrice", in Beatrice, and other Poems (1868).
  • Ah! what if some unshamed iconoclast
    Crumbling old fetish raiments of the past,
    Rises from dead cerements the Christ at last?
    What if men take to following where He leads,
    Weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
    • The Red Flag (1872).
