A Casualty


Only a scream, thr'o the night as a warning,

only a bursting shell.

Naught but duty-death ever scorning,

Ended so nobly well.


Only a mound, on the Hill in the dawning,

Marked by a wooden Cross,

Naught but a name, in the list of the morning,

Telling of some ones loss.


Only a home, in the land of his breeding,

only some heart laid bare,

Only a grief, that the world is unheeding,

Only a vacant chair.
