"_--Heedless and careless, still the world wags on,
And leaves me broken ... Oh, my son! my son!_"
Yet--think of this!--
Yea, rather think on this!--
He died as few men get the chance to die,--
Fighting to save a world's morality.
He died the noblest death a man may die,
Fighting for God, and Right, and Liberty;--
And such a death is Immortality.
"_He died unnoticed in the muddy trench._"
Nay,--God was with him, and he did not blench;
Filled him with holy fires that nought could quench,
And when He saw his work below was done,
He gently called to him,--"_My son! My son!
I need thee for a greater work than this.
Thy faith, thy zeal, thy fine activities
Are worthy of My larger liberties;_"--
--Then drew him with the hand of welcoming grace,
And, side by side, they climbed the heavenly ways.
LORD, SAVE THEIR SOULS ALIVE!
Lord, save their souls alive!
And--for the rest,--
We leave it all to Thee
I think it's a beautiful poem;showing how men and wome reason the deth of love ones and themselves.
