He was not given to shedding tears. He faced
Life with a Spartan grit. When he was right,
For strangled, gracious causes he could fight.
His way was gentle when folks' hearts unlaced,
And earnest when a chum might be displaced.
Distress of loved ones he could not forget.
His soul for loyal feats was always set.
How marked his moans when love was least debased!
He deeply sensed the priceless worth of friends.
What tenderness he showed as sickness harms,
Or dire despair calamity attends!
His saintly kindliness had triple charms.
When Father mourned -- O, if he could have cried!
Each tearless grief supreme love verified.
