VICTOR AND VANQUISHED
Poets' sing of him who 'wins: ;'",
- The throng. loudly Jfceers; -
The jrictot? swells with pride
; ; As goal he Bears. ;
Forgets him who the race began,
But frail of .body lags :
Then falls behind at last to lose
Ttie crowd still cheers
Nor has a word of praise r '
For him who .triedi ,
And bending every effort
Failed to win the Iprize. j
Methinks the nobler, he . . .
Who, when race is o'er,
Yields with smiles - the laurels
which he lost, ; ' '"' '
And with friendly handshake
Greets the stronger one
Who counteth not the cost.
