(1888-1915)

Into Battle

1 The naked earth is warm with Spring,
2 And with green grass and bursting trees
3 Leans to the sun's gaze glorying,
4 And quivers in the sunny breeze;
5 And life is Colour and Warmth and Light,
6 And a striving evermore for these;
7 And he is dead who will not fight,
8 And who dies fighting has increase.
