So young to go, you say? Porhaps.
So full of life's fair hopo and strong,
Facing each day with hopo, strength, and faith,
As caroirco ns a thrusirs song.
Ho heard tho call of man-mado war
Ho answered and in answorlng foil;
Ho did his part as bravo men! will,
Ho played his rolo and piayed It we'll.
Ob.1 mothor with your toar-dlmmed oyes,
And you, his father, o'or-wholmcd with grief,
You think his stny on earth was short, - ',,
But earth's life is so brlof.
His doop brown locks, your hair tlngod gray,
Aro measurements of fleeting yoars;
IIo Journeyed faster, that was all
In passing through this va1o of tears. ;
But think you well each cventltle,
Tho whijo you pray to mrfet again,.
That he knows loyalty to God
Who first learns loyalty tS men.
His country was moro dear than life,
You gave, ho gavo tho all ho had;
Bo satisfied, bo glad, content;
, Be proud to know ho was jjour lad.
