Alternate Author Name(s): Bell, Ellis

King Julius left the south country
His banners all bravely flying
His followers went out with Jubilee
But they shall return with sighing

Loud arose the triumphal hymn
The drums were loudly rolling
Yet you might have heard in distance dim
How a passing bell was tolling

The sword so bright from battles won
With unseen rust is fretting
The evening comes before the noon
The scarce risen sun is setting

While princes hang upon his breath
And nations round are fearing
Close by his side a daggered Death
With sheathless point stands sneering

That death he took a certain aim
For Death is stony-hearted
And in the zenith of his fame
Both power and life departed --
