HELENA COLEMAN

AUTHOR OF "SONGS AND SONNETS," "MARCHING MEN," ETC.

The Living Dead.

My tears are less for the slain
In the battle of life,
Than for those that remain
Unarmed to the strife.

For those who near have known
The warrior's share;
Near frozen or flamed
With love and despair.

For hearts that know not to weep
Or kindle with scorn,
For souls still heavy with sleep
That perish unborn.

Helena Coleman
