VII.

Yet half a beast is the great god Pan,

To laugh as he sits by the river, Making a poet out of a man: The true gods sigh for the cost and pain,For the reed which grows never more again

As a reed with the reeds in the river.

THE FORCED RECRUIT.

Solferino, 1859.
(From the same.)

I.

In the ranks of the Austrian you found him,

He died with his face to you all ; Yet bury him here where around him

You honour your bravest that fall.

II.

Venetian, fair-featur'd and slender,

He lies shot fo death in his youth, With a smile on his lips over-tender

For any mere soldier's dead mouth,

III.
No stranger, and yet not a traitor,

Though alien the cloth on his breast,
Underneath it how seldom a greater

Young heart, has a shot sent to rest !

IV.

By your enemy tortur'd and goaded

To march with them, stand in their file, His musket (see) never was loaded,

He facing your guns with that smile!

V.

As orphans yearn on to their mothers,

He yearn'd to your patriot bands; “ Let me die for our Italy, brothers, If not in your ranks, by your hands !

vi. " Aim straightly, fire steadily! spare me

A ball in the body which may Deliver my heart here, and tear me

This badge of the Austrian away !"

VIT.

So thought he, so died he this morning.

What then? Many others have died. Ay, but easy for men to die scorning

The death-stroke, who fought side by side.

VIII.

One tricolour floating above them;

Struck down, 'mid triumphant acclaims
Of an Italy rescued to love them
And blazon the brass with their names.

IX.
But he,—without witness or honour,

Mix'd, shamed in his country's regard,
With the tyrants who march in upon ber,
Died faithful and passive: 'twas hard.

X. 'Twas sublime. In a cruel restriction

Cut off from the guerdon of sons, With most filial obedience, conviction,

His soul kiss'd the lips of her guns.

XI. That moves you ? Nay, grudge not to show it,

While digging a grave for him here: The others who died, says your poet,

Have glory,–let him have a tear.
