Jerusalem, Christmas 1905.
The Old Year and the New.
Tint clocks were on the stroke of twelve,
The moon was bright and high
A footstep broke the frozen crust,
A shadow passed me by.
I saw a veteran, lame and old.
Whose march was almost done.
The battered knapsack on his back
Was empty like his. gun.
The Over chimes began to ring.
I heard a bugle blow.
A dashinr; soldier, joung and fair
Came riding o'er the snow.
The frost was on his cloak of blue
And on his yellow plume'
And on his sword he bore s roe
A red, red rose - in bloom.
He halted where the aged man
Had fallen in the snows,
And icy winds have made for him
A bed of white repose.
He set the bugle to his lips.
The notes of "taps" he blew,
And then I knew that I beheld
Tlie old year and the new.
