Would that I..

Would that I were like a bird
Soaring high above the earth
Looking down on hill, and glen
On the graves of fallen men
When you’ve flown o’er land and sea
Come, one day, remember me
Think of all I was in Life
All I gave in sacrifice!
The vagrant spirit of my youth
That love of Beauty and of Truth
As you avert your eyes away
For the good of Mankind pray
Now, you’ve gone, and I lay here
Shed for me but one more tear…
