Excerpt: ... THE VEILED LADY Whoso hath seen her brow displayed, Keeps silence of its bloom or blight. She passeth through our streets arrayed In weeds that screen her from men's sight None knoweth if in that veil bedight Lurk loathsome hag or lovesome maid. Whoso hath seen her brow displayed Keeps silence of its bloom or blight. Men pass her daily undismayed, Yet often in the sleepless night Cry "Grace or Gorgon?" sore afraid; But no word comes from any wight.

Fight on, Indomitable as he -- As he, our captain without stain, The Bayard of the poor. Be men! Flinch no man in this hour. Remember him that knew no fear, And craved no diadem. A cheer! Be that his requiem. 1897 Be men -- BENZAQUEN: A...
