Dedicated to Constance Lytton
"Glory of warrior, glory of orator, glory of song,
Paid with a voice flying by to be lost on an endless sea –
Glory of virtue, to fight, to struggle, to right the wrong –
Nay, but she aim'd not at glory, no lover of glory she:
Give her the glory of going on and still to be."
De Aar, Cape of Good Hope,
South Africa. 1911.
