"Some village Hampden that with dauntless breast
The little tyrant of his fields withstood here may rest."


O! Sussex earth, receive today
This steadfast soul, this fearless son
Who led us foremost in that fray
Which hath but just begun.


Something of Hampden's noble rage
Was his, who early took the field
Where later hosts more fiercely wage
The fight they will not yield.


And when the foeman breaks and runs
Beneath our last bright cannonade
Among the Captains of the guns
Shall ride this leader's shade.


April 9, 1934.
