I.


O SOLDIERS, soldiers, get ye back, I pray!
Hush out of sound your trampings so near his
lowly head!
Hush back the echoes of your footfalls to the muffling
distance!
O soldiers, wake not my sleeping love!
Get ye back, I pray!
To-morrow will he wake, and lead ye on as bravely as
before.
To-morrow will he lift the blazing sword above a
crimeson flood of victory.
Get ye back and wait.
He is weary, and would sleep.
