I know a lone spot on the Arras road
Where I shall hardly bear to walk again
For fear of waking those great souls I loved
Who struggled to a death of piteous pain.

Ah! I should hear their laughter on the way,
And round my heart their boyish sighs would creep;
Till I must long to leave the rushing world
And steal away to join them in their sleep.

For only they who tread the tortured path
Of those torn roads where swaying poplars sigh,
Can dream how God could give no greater bliss
Than this hushed peace beneath the sad French sky.

I know a lone spot on the Arras road
That murmurs with the moan of Memory's pain.
And I should grieve my heart with stifled sobs
If I could bear to walk that road again.
