We   Will  Remember  Them

 

 

  How sleep the brave, who sink to rest     By fairy hands their knell is rung;  
  By all their country's wishes blest!     By forms unseen their dirge is sung,  
  When Spring, with dewy fingers cold,     There Honour comes, a pilgrim grey,  
  Returns to deck their hallowed mould,     To bless the turf that wraps their clay;  
  She there shall dress a sweeter sod     And Freedom shall awhile repair  
  Than Fancy's feet have ever trod.     To dwell, a weeping hermit, there!  
  "How Sleep the Brave" : William Collins
