    The Song Of The Soldier-Born

    Give me the scorn of the stars and a peak defiant;
    Wail of the pines and a wind with the shout of a giant;
    Night and a trail unknown and a heart reliant.

    Give me to live and love in the old, bold fashion;
    A soldier's billet at night and a soldier's ration;
    A heart that leaps to the fight with a soldier's passion.

    For I hold as a simple faith there's no denying:
    The trade of a soldier's the only trade worth plying;
    The death of a soldier's the only death worth dying.

    So let me go and leave your safety behind me;
    Go to the spaces of hazard where nothing shall bind me;
    Go till the word is War - and then you will find me.

    Then you will call me and claim me because you will need me;
    Cheer me and gird me and into the battle-wrath speed me....
    And when it's over, spurn me and no longer heed me.

    For guile and a purse gold-greased are the arms you carry;
    With deeds of paper you fight and with pens you parry;
    You call on the hounds of the law your foes to harry.

    You with your 'Art for its own sake', posing and prinking;
    You with your 'Live and be merry', eating and drinking;
    You with your 'Peace at all hazard', from bright blood shrinking.

    Fools! I will tell you now: though the red rain patters,
    And a million of men go down, it's little it matters....
    There's the Flag upflung to the stars, though it streams in tatters.

    There's a glory gold never can buy to yearn and to cry for;
    There's a hope that's as old as the sky to suffer and sigh for;
    There's a faith that out-dazzles the sun to martyr and die for.

    Ah no! it's my dream that War will never be ended;
    That men will perish like men, and valour be splendid;
    That the Flag by the sword will be served, and honour defended.

    That the tale of my fights will never be ancient story;
    That though my eye may be dim and my beard be hoary,
    I'll die as a soldier dies on the Field of Glory.

    So give me a strong right arm for a wrong's swift righting;
    Stave of a song on my lips as my sword is smiting;
    Death in my boots may-be, but fighting, fighting. read more »
