English.png English text

High on the windy cliff
Between the sea and the sky
The memorial cross is set.
'They died that we might live,'
I wince at the solemn claim
The living too soon forget.
O pitiful lettered names
That did all this resign,
Light, and the white gull’s flight
Between the sky and the sea!
All this that now is mine,
Sunshine warm on my skin,
And the blood warm in my veins.
Who am I that I should win
From your forfeiture in strife
This ecstasy, this life!
