"the Men Who Loved The Cause That Never Dies"

O come you down from the far hills
Whereon you fought, triumphed and died,
Men at whose names the quick blood thrills
And the heart's troubled in our side.

Your shadows o'er our fields ere night
Draw from the shadow of old trees;
Ghost-hallowed run the streams, and light
Hangs halo-wise in the great peace.

Warriors of England whom we praise
(Ah, vain all praise!), your spirit is not
Lost in the meanness of these days,
Not wholly is your charge forgot.

And this perplexity of strife
Not all estranged leaves our heart;
England is ours yet, and her life
Has yet in ours the purest part.

But come you down and stand you yet
A little closer to our side,
Or in the darkness we forget
The cause for which Earth's noblest died.

(The end)
John Freeman's poem: "The Men Who Loved The Cause That Never Dies"

Ah, what homeKnow these, save in the Ship, the Ship! She groansDay and night with travail of their strenuous bones.They know her for their mother, sister, spouse,Heart of their passion, idol of their vows;They ward her, and she is their sure defence'Gainst the sad waters' leagued malevolence.The Ship, the Ship: they
