With lofty song we love to cheer 
The hearts of daring men; 
But now we sing of lowly deed 
Devoted to the brave, 
When she who stems the wound 
that bleeds.  
A hero's life to save: 
And heroes saved exulting tell 
How well her voice they knew, 
How sorrow near it could not dwell. 
But spread its wings and flew.
Neglected dying in dispair.
They lay till women came 
To sooth them with her gentle care. 
And feed life's flickering flame. 
When wounded sore on fevers sake. 
Or cast-away as slain; 
She called ths fluttering spirits back, 
And gave them strength again. 
T'was grief to mess the passing face
That suffering could dispel, 
But joy to turn & kiss the place 
On which her shadow fell.

Pte G. Hughes.  R.A.M.C 4th Field Amb: att: Guards. 
Wounded at Loos 27th Sept 1915.
