Louis Untermeyer
1885 -

American poet, critic, and editor, author of Challenge (1914), Selected Poems and Parodies (1935), and other works

Ever insurgent let me be, Make me more daring than devout; From sleek contentment keep me free, And fill me with a buoyant doubt.

1914 - from "Prayer", published in Challenge
From compromise and things half done, Keep me with stern and stubborn pride; And when at last the fight is won, God, keep me still unsatisfied.

1914 - from "Prayer", published in Challenge
