[from Collected Works, T.E.Brown]
" HAS Nelson heard?"
Deaths angel spake what time the sea was rent
With that big plunge. Far hand-clap, and the word
Content ; even so,
Great sailor, let the immortal signal fly
Enough ! we know our duty, and we know
To die. No loud
Thunder of battle shakes the furious scene;
And, if we die in silence, are you proud,
O Queen, tis thus
For you we die, no matter where or when
Or how we die, the while you say of us
" O, nobly died ! O glorious Englishmen!"
