CAVALRY-SONG.                     231
Weaponed well, to war we ride Who braves the battle wins the bride ; Who dies the death for Truth, shall be Alive in love eternally :
Though dead he lies,
Soft, starry eyes Smile hope to him from purple skies.
Weaponed well, to war we ride Hurrah ! for the surging thunder-tide, Wiien the cannon's roar makes all seem large, And the war-horse screams in the crashing charge,
And the rider strong,
Whom he bears along, Is a death-dart shot at the yielding throng.
Weaponed well, to war we ride ;
The ball is open, the hall is wide
The sabre, as it quits the sheath,
And beams with the lurid light of death,
And the deadly glance
Of the glittering lance, Are the taper-lights of the battle-dance.
Weaponed well, to war we ride Find your foemen on either side, But woe to those who miss the time,
