Eugene Field Poem
Soldier, Maiden, And Flower
 by Eugene Field

“Sweetheart, take this,” a soldier said,
“And bid me brave good-by;
It may befall we ne'er shall wed,
But love can never die.
Be steadfast in thy troth to me,
And then, whate'er my lot,
'My soul to God, my heart to thee,'-
Sweetheart, forget me not!”
