F
Just now the lilac is in bloom
All before my little room.

R
Now, God be thanked who has matched us with His hour,
And caught our youth, and wakened us from sleeping.
A
And I shall find some girl perhaps,
And a better one than you,
With eyes as wise, but kindlier,
And lips as soft, but true,
And I daresay she will do.
N
War knows no power. Safe shall be my going,
Secretly armed against all death's endeavour;
Safe though all safety's lost; safe where men fall;
And if these poor limbs die, safest of all.
K
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England.
