LITERATURE OF THE MAINE. !
—— '
The battleship Maine whose
specacular reburial was described
in a recent nv,mber of The Herald,
has naturally been the subject of
much writing and the theme of
much eloquence. The last things
perhaps, and the best possibly, have
not yet been said or written. Still,
we may count at least two bits of
writing in connection with the
Maine tragedy that will hold per
manent places in our literature.
One of these is the poem, “The
Fighting Race,’ which appeared in
an Eastern newspaper about the
time of the Spanish war. The niime
of the author is not known to the
editor. It is not only good for its
association with the Maine disaster,
but for the splendid tribute to the
"Fighting race.”
The other *is a tribute to the cor
poral of marines who reported the ac
cident to the captain, in due form
and with proper ceremony, in the
midst of the awful confusion of the
moment. The name of the writer
is not lost in this instance. We give
the poems in the order in which they
• are here mentioned.
t The Fighting Race.
' “Read out the names!” and Burke
. sat back,
5 And Kelley drooped his head,
f While Shea—they called him Scholar
' Jack—
t Read out the names of the dead,
f Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
The crews of the gig and yawl,
: The bearded man and the youth in
■ his teens,
Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
; Then, knocking the ashes out of his
: Pipe,
Said Burke, in an offhand way:
i “We’re all in that dead man’s list,
: by Cripe,
Kelly and Burke and Shea!”
: Well, here to the Maine, and I'm
sorry for Spain,”
Said Kelly and Burke and Shea.
! “Wherever there’s Kellys there’s
trouble,” said Burke.
“Wherever fighting's the game,
"Or a spice of danger in grown
men's work,”
Said Kelly, “you’ll find my name.”
“And do we fall short,” said Burke
getting mad,
“When it’s touch and go for a
life?”
Said Shea, ‘‘It’s thirty-odd years,
bedad.
Since I charged to drum and fife
Up Marye's Height, and my old can
teen
Stopped a bit of lead on the way;
There were blossoms of red on our
sprigs of green—
Kelly and Burke and Shea—
And the dead didn’t brag.” “Well,
here’s to the flag!”
Said Kelly and Burke and Shea.
“1 wish 'twas in Ireland, for there’s
the placq,”
Said Burke, “that we’d die by
right,
In the cradle of our soldier race,
After one stand-up fight;
My grandfather fell on Vinegar Hill.
And fighting was not his trade.
But his rusty pike's in the cabin
still.
And there's Hessian blood on the
blade.”
“Aye, aye,” said Kelly, “the pikes
were great
When the word was ‘clear the
way! ’
We were thick on the roll in ninety
eight—
Kelly and Burke and Shea.”
"Well, here's to the pike and the
sword and the like!”
Said Kelly and "Burke and Shea.
And Shea, the Scholar, with rising
joy.
Said, “We were at Ramillies,
We left our bones at Fontenoy
And up in the Pyrenees;
Before Dunkirk, on Landen's plain,
Cremona, Lille and Ghent;
We were all over Austria, France
and Spain,
Wherever they pitched a tent.
We’ve died for England from Water
loo
To Egypt and Dargai;”
“Well, here's to the good, honest
fighting blood!”
Said Kelly and Burke and Shea.
“Oh, the fighting races they don't
die out.
If they seldom die in their bed,
For love is first in their hearts no
doubt,”
Said Burke; then Kelly said: .
“When Michael, the Irish archangel,
stands—
The angel with the sword—
And the battle-dead from a hundred
lands
Are ranged in one big horde,
Our line that for Gabriel's trumpet
waits,
Will stretch three deep that day,
From Jehoshaphat to the Golden
Gates,
Kelly and Burke and Shea.”
“Well, here’s thank God for the
race and the sod!”
Said Kelly and Burke and Shea.
Bill Anthony, Marine.
N. A. Jennings, in New York World.
-- —
When above the awful din rose the
sailors’ voices shrieking,
"Help! help! For God's sake help
us, ere we sink into the sea!”
When the light from bursting shells
showed the decks with blood
were reeking,
At ‘‘attention” stood Bill Anthony
with courage bold and free.
Straight and cool as on parade, from
the danger never shrinking,
The orderly saluted as in steady
tones he said:
"I have, sir, yo inform you that the
ship's blown up and sinking.”
Then waited for his orders while
the shells crashed overhead.
In the fury of the charge, when the
cannons roar and thunder,
And men are drunk with fighting,
acts of bravery are seen;
But to stand still at ‘‘attention”
while his ship was rent asunder
Was the kind of courage show-n by
Bill Anthony, marine.
In the roster of the heroes who have
striven for Old Glory,
High on the roll of honor give
Bill Anthony a place:
And when our theme is courage, let
us not forget the story
Of his standing at "attention”
when death stared him in the
face.
