First Line: A misty eye and a wasted cheek
Last Line: And mingle blood with groans.
Subject(s): Peasantry


A MISTY eye and a wasted cheek
In a window near the sea;
Cities are sad and meadows bleak
And rains fall drearily.

A sallow cheek and a cold, cold eye
In a land across the sea;
Father and brother and sweetheart lie
Beside their musketry.

Velvety palaces, coffers of gold,
And kings upon their thrones,
While peasants grapple as of old
And mingle blood with groans.
