They shall not grow old
as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them
In our hearts forever

Here dead we lie,
Because we did not choose,
To live and shame the land,
from which we sprung.
Life, to be sure,
Is nothing much to lose,
But young men think it is,
And we were young.
