    And lifts the sparkling cup on high;

    "Whose image never may depart,
    Deep graven on this grateful heart,
    Till memory be dead."

    Not breathe her name in careless mood
    Thus lightly to another;
    Then bent his noble head, as though
    To give the word the reverence due,
    And gently said, "My mother!"

The cannons to the heavens, the heaven to earth,
