To My Mother—1916

By: S. Donald Cox (1916)

If I should fall, grieve not that one so weak
And poor as I
Should die.
Nay! though thy heart should break
Think only this: that when at dusk they speak
Of sons and brothers of another one,
Then thou canst say—“I too had a son;
He died for England’s sake!”
