D.G.C. TO J.A, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Come, the wind may never again
Last Line: Me to strike for your life's blood, and you to strike for mine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Bell, Ellis
Subject(s): Love


Come, the wind may never again
Blow as now it blows for us;
And the stars may never again shine as they now shine;
Long before October returns,
Seas of blood will have parted us;
And you must crush the love in your heart, and I the love in mine!
For face to face will our kindred stand,
And as they are so shall we be;
Forgetting how the same sweet earth has borne and nourished all --
One must fight for the people's power,
And one for the rights of Royalty;
And each be ready to give his life to work the other's fall.
The chance of war we cannot shun,
Nor would we shrink from our fathers' cause,
Nor dred Death more because the hand that gives it may be dear;
We must bear to see Ambition rule
Over Love, with his iron laws;
Must yield our blood for a stranger's sake, and refuse ourselves a tear!
So, the wind may never blow again
Blow as now it blows for us,
And the stars may never again shine as now they shine;
Next October, the cannon's roar
From hostile ranks may be urging us --
Me to strike for your life's blood, and you to strike for mine.
