THE AUTHORS FAREWELL TO
Some carry their swags in the Great North- West:
Where the bravest battle and die,
And a few have said " Good-bye!"
Ere the Gumsttgaifr I:see; .
To the chaps who barracked for me.
\ Their days are hard at the best of times,
And their dreams are dreams of care—
And the brave, brave grins they wear!
A nd true as a man may be!
Of the men who had faith in me!
