Inscription on a Soldiers’ Monument
By Joseph Anderson (1836–1916)
 
[Born in Ross-shire, Scotland, 1836.]

BRAVE men, who, rallying at your country’s call
Went forth to fight,—if Heaven willed, to fall!
  Returned, ye walk with us through sunnier years,
And hear a nation say, God bless you all!
 
Brave men, who yet a heavier burden bore,        5
And came not home to hearts by grief made sore!
  They call you dead; but lo! ye grandly live,
Shrined in the nation’s love forevermore!

  1886.
