The Last Robin
Lyrics and Sonnets


by Ethelwyn Wetherald



 

MY ORDERS.



MY orders are to fight.
    Then if I bleed, or fail,
Or strongly win, what matters it?
    God only doth prevail.

The servant craveth naught

5

    Except to serve with might.
I was not told to win or lose,—
    My orders are to fight. [Page 13]
