went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow,
They were staunch to the end aganist odds uncounted.
They fell their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sum and in the morning
We will remember them.
