|The Last Word|
By Matthew Arnold
(English essayist and poet, 18221888)
|THEY out-talkd thee, hissd thee, tore thee.|
|Better men fared thus before thee;|
|Fired their ringing shot and passd,|
|Hotly chargedand broke at last.|
|Charge once more, then, and be dumb!|| 5|
|Let the victors, when they come,|
|When the forts of folly fall,|
|Find thy body by the wall.|
