FOR ENGLAND." LADY LINDSAY'S POEM. We take the two following verses from the patriotic poem which Lady Lindsay has written. The en tire profits derived from the sale of "For England," which is by special permission dedicated to H.R.H. the Princess of Wales, are handed over to the Soldiers and Sailors' Families' Association and in this way, during the last four weeks, £100 has been sent to Colonel Gildea for distribution. Copies of the poem (price 6d, post free 7d) may be obtained from Lady Lindsay, 41, Hans Place, London, S.W. Booksellers willing to assist in the sale are invited to communicate with Lady Lindsay. "For England" may be recited without per- mission and without fee. Lies he upon the battle plain, Wounded, and calls ? Again, again he calls, And calls in vain- And I Not nigh, t; To bind his hurt and ease his pain, And bring him back to life and joy again Perchance the darkness falls Upon that ghastly bleak hill-side Where they, who make our grief, but more our pride, They whom we ne'er forget, Our soldier heroes, all unconquered yet, Save by grim Death, Unyielding to the foe, yield now their valorous breath For England. He lives Methinksl hear him speak to-night: Dear heart, you would Not keep me if you could. Your hand, your little English hand, Points to the fight. For sake of this our motherland, Her honour and her might, I went. Dear heart, If yours must prove the harder part: To stay and watch and wait From early dawn till evening late, From evening late to early dawn again to stay, And watch and wait, and so from day to day- Yet, as you love me, hold sweet courage high. God's care shall guard my wife Ay, whether He demand or spare my life, Whether I live or die For England!"
