AFTER THE BATTLE.
I've trod tho slippery path of fame,
I've burned nt honor's atory ;
I've sought to win myself a name,
On battlo fields of glory,;
Wliero brlghttlie bristling bayonets rose,
And blsod flowed free,
I fiercely have encountered foes,
For thee, for thce,-
Dangcr and Death fall on I've dared,
Have seen tho cannon, flashing;
Have rushed with arm for o unlmt. bared,
Wliero sabrca bright wcreclaahlng''.
Then sunk to rest when day had fled,
Beneath a tree i
And when In Bleep's obllyjon dead,
Have dreamed of thoc
How bleat the vblona Home was then
In each bright drcniuahq made mo;
All 1 must they never come again.
Or has my fate betrayed me ?,
Hopeless I wish tballlimt weit mine,
Say wilt thou be t
Tor nil my loudest wishes twlno
Round thee, rou nd ttico.
