🌾 Today’s Poem ~ Ballard of the Brave

Ballard of the Brave

Grantland Rice

WE have loved but we have lost
We have fought but we have failed;
We have paid the bitter cost,
Yet our hearts have never quailed ;

We have fallen in the fray
Through the sweep of countless suns,
Yet we’ve risen and today
We are standing to the guns !

We have dreamed throughout the night
Not of glory without end,
But the whirlwind of the fight
Which the coming day would send ;

We were tempted and we fell
To the bitter depths and then
From the very maw of hell
We have struggled back again.
