Deo Vindice

The Southern Dead
The Southern dead are sleeping
In a thousand Southern glens...
The moss and willows beckon
With the breath of Southern Winds.

Though the blood-stained cross of St. Andrew
Is tattered now and furled...
They bore it high on every field
and o'er every ocean of the world.

It wasn't through their failing
That the gleaming turned to rust...
And the dreaming of a nation
Is enshrined within their dust.

Some would have their deeds forgot,
Their monuments swept away...
But while Southern blood flows in our veins,
Those knaves shall never see the day.

Teach your children of their story,
Of battles, lost and won...
They must keep memory's light a-burning
Till Southern rivers cease to run.

The Southern Dead are sleeping.

Sgt. Benj. R. Gormley
