Local officer’s poem appears in army paper
Capt. B.C. Maidens, of Lindsay, has recently been given wide publicity through the medium of the Canadian Army Newspaper, Maple Leaf. Capt. Maidens is at present in Holland.Hold High the Torch
O, valiant hearts of yesteryear,
that sleep in Flanders Fields.We are the dead that caught the torch
that failing hands did flingArise, brave warriors, from thy sleep
and take us by the hand.Strangers we, that needs must sleep
far from our native land.
What say ye now, O soldiers bold,
did we break faith or not?And will our slumbers be like yours,
broken by sound of shot?Like you we gave our all that freedom
still might reign, That shadows of war might never darken
our fair and wide domain.
Capt. B.C. Maidens.
