A life scarce worth the living, a poor fame

Scarce worth the winning, in a wretched land,

Where fear and pain go upon either hand,

As toward the end men fare without an aim

Unto the dull grey dark from whence they came:

Let them alone, the unshadowed sheer rocks stand

Over the twilight graves of that poor band,

Who count so little in the great world's game!

Nay, with the dead I deal not; this man lives,

And that which carried him through good and ill,

Stern against fate while his voice echoed still

From rock to rock, now he lies silent, strives

With wasting time, and through its long lapse gives

Another friend to me, life's void to fill.
