HOW WE SAVED THEM.
A LIFEBOAT BALLAD.
"Look alive, men! " was the shout,
Scarce heard above the roar Of the thundering billows tumbling out
From the night up the grating shore : •' Look alive ! " " Ay, ready ! " And far
Out, up from the foam, again, Shot a rocket—a burning star,
Blood-red—through the blinding rain. " Now, never a wilder night
Have we launched us to sea, God knows ! But the Goodwins sent up that light;
Hurrah ! to the storm she goes ! "
" Bend to it, my mates ! pull all!
Drive her out through the racing foam ! We'll save those for help who call,
Before we again see home.
