Last Line: That you gave to me.
Alternate Author Name(s): Faulks, Frederick J., Mrs.

THAT was never a book that you brought me and gave to my hand --
'Twas a wind sighing and a wave lifting,
And the sight of a red moon drifting
O'er a far-off land.

That was never a thing of words that you brought and bade me know --
'Twas a bugle blowing, a flame burning,
And the gleam of a swift lance turning
To the flying foe.

That was never a printed rhyme that you brought and bade me see --
'Twas a child's laughter and a bride's sighing,
A saint's faith and a strong man's dying,
That you gave to me.
