Ten years; but what are years to the dead
Who lie beneath conquested soil,
At rest, at peace, from bloody toil?

Ten years since these have followed and led
The charge of steel against a foe
Who met and gave them blow for blow.

Ten years have thousands slept in a bed
Of priceless earth that once was France,
But now a world's inheritance.

Ten years; but what are years to these dead?
For them no love, no sun, no stars;
But glory and bemedaled scars!
