displayed, Keeps silence of its bloom or blight. She passeth

triumph yet is yours, The triumph every cause has won That called
men to be free Fight on, Indomitable as he -- As he, our captain
without stain, The Bayard of the poor. Be men Flinch no man in this
hour. Remember him that knew no fear, And craved no diadem. A cheer
Be that his requiem. 1897 Be men -- BENZAQUEN: A...
