I f you can
A world
D istraugh t with war
And battlefields
W et down with blood
And sinking vessels
Choking screams
Of dying
Who fought
And died
For w h at ?
They never knew
And others going down today
And others still tomorrow
A sacrifice
For lands
And flags
T hat owned them life
Instead of death
And we
Who live across the world
Look on
And wonder
If this thing
T hat cries for blood
And widowed wives
And orphaned babes
Will reach its hands
Above the seas
And beckon us
And wondering
We look to Washington
To him
Who guides the way
For us
And see a man
With bended head
And tear-stained face
Beside the bier
Of her
Whose life
Had been
The half of his
And who
On bended knees
Had held the hand
When life w ent out
T hat he had held
In loving grasp
Through all the years
Since boyhood days
And for the mom ent
We fo rget
And add to his
Our tears of sympathy
And then forget again
And hurry back
To bloodstained battlefields
And sinking ships
And back iri Washington
Our Man of Peace
Weeps on alone
More tears for one
Than kaisers, czars or kings
Find time to shed
For thousands
Sent to their graves
By them.
