THE FINAL CONQUEST,
Ilhe glories of our birth and stato
Are shadows, not substant ial things
There is no armor against fate :
Seept.ro and crown
Must tumble down,
Anti in the dust be equal mado
1With the poor crooked scythe and spade.
Some me'n with swords may reap tlie feldt,
And plant, fresh laurels where they kill,
Rut thle strong nerves at last must yield,
They tame bitt one another still.
Early or late
They stoop to fate,
And must give up their nurmoering breath,
When they pale captives creep to death.
The garlands wither on your brow,
Then boast no more your mighty deeds;
Upon death's purple alter now
Sce where the victim bleeds;
All heads must como
To the cold tonib.
Only Ihe actions of tlie just.
