Lest We Regret

LEST WE REGRET

 

Behold

How rough the way

From Runnymeade of old

And through the years until today

That man has trod in search of liberty

To reach this state of freedom won for you and me

And yet those rights for which our Fathers fought and died

Can by some conquering tyrant be denied

If through our own disunity

We let our ramparts fall

With slavery 

For all

 

And then we'll prize

Each blessing of today

Free speech, free press, free enterprise

And that good life in folly thrown away

As oft the wealth of those who live but for today

Then in the deepest sorrow will be curse our fate

Vigilance, strength and unity

Was the worthwhile cost

Of liberty 

That's

Lost

William Bowlby

March 31, 1958
