Excerpt from Life and Letters of Charles Russell Lowell: Captain Sixth United States Cavalry, Colonel Second Massachusetts Cavalry, Brigadier-General United States Volunteers
Some day the soft Ideal that we wooed Confronts us fiercely, foe-beset, pursued, And cries reproachful, Was it then my praise And not myself was loved Prove now thy truth, I claim of thee the promise of thy youth Give me thy life, or cower in empty phrase The victim of thy genius, not its mate.' From the camp and the battlefield Charles Lowell was looking into the quiet beyond the smoke, where he hoped, as a citizen, to work at the harder tasks of helping to solve the prob lems that we face to-day. His especial wish was to raise the standard of life and thought of the workingmen of America.
