SURGEON, by            
First Line: How powerfully he dominates his day
Last Line: When they recall the great, kind heart of him.
Subject(s): Surgery


How powerfully he dominates his day
With judgment and in understanding skill;
And courage rare that falters not until
Grim death defeated turns another way.
The task is done; a life is saved; once more
In quick succession comes another case
And he forgetting self again must face --
A life to save -- death lurking as before!
And so he lives and serves humanity
In duty's thorny path of highest worth;
No measuring his service here on earth.
Less difficult his life if he could see
The gratitude of all whose eyes must dim --
When they recall the great, kind heart of him.
