ONLY A PRIVATE
By Margaret J Preston (1820-1897)

Only A Private -- And Who Will Care When I May Pass Away, Or How, Or Why I Perish, Or Where I Mix With Common Clay?
They Will Fill My Empty Place Again With Another As Bold And Brave; And They'll Blot Me Out Ere The Autumn Rain Has Freshened My Nameless Grave.

Only A Private -- It Matters Not That I Did My Duty Well, That All Through A Score Of Battles I Fought, And Then, Like A Soldier I Fell.
The Country I Died For Will Never Heed My Unreguited Claim; And History Cannot Record The Deed, For She Has Never Heard My Name.

Only A Private -- And Yet I Know When I Heard The Rallying-Call I Was One Of The Very First To Go, And...I'm One Of Many Who Fall: But As Here I Lie, It Is Sweet To Feel That My Honor's Without A Stain, That I Only Fougth For My Country's Weal, And Not For Glory Or Gain.

Only A Private -- Yet He Who Reads Through The Guises Of The Heart, Looks Not At The Splendor Of The Deeds, But The Way We Do Our Part; And When He Shall Take Us By The Hand, And Our Small service Own, There'll A Glorious Band Of Privates Stand As Victors Around The Throne!
