The soldier's silence, and the matron's tear,--These are the trappings of the sable bier, Which time corrupts not, falsehood cannot hide, Nor folly scorn, nor calumny deride. And 'what is writ, is writ!'--the guilt and shame, All eyes have seen them, and all lips may blame; Where is the record of the wrong that stung, The charm that tempted, and the grief that wrung 1 Let feeble hands, iniquitously just, Rake up the reliques of the sinful dust, Let ignorance mock the pang it cannot feel, And Malice brand, what Mercy would conceal; It matters not! he died as all would die; Greece had his earliest song, his latest sigh; And o'er the shrine, in which that cold heart sleeps, Glory looks dim, and joyous conquest weeps. The maids of Athens to the spot shall bring The freshest roses of the new-born spring, The Spartan boys their first-won wreath shall bear, To bloom round Byron's urn, or droop in sadness there 1 Farewell, sweet Athens! thou shalt be again The sceptred Queen of all thine old domain, Again be blest in all thy varied charms Of loveliness and valor, arts and arms. Forget not then, that in thine hour of dread, While the weak battled, and the guiltless bled, Though Kings and Courts stood gazing on thy fate, The bad, to scoff--the better, to debate, 13 Here, where the soul of youth remembers yet The smiles and tears which manhood must forget, In a far land, the honest and the free Had lips to pray, and hearts to feel, for thee!
