CHARLES LAW WATKINS
American writer and poet
(1886 - 1945)

A Witness.
  Consider all thy, actions and take heed
    On stolen bread, tho' it is sweet to feed.
      Sin, like a bee, unto thy hive may bring
        Is little honey but expect the sting.
          Thou may'st conceal thy sin by cunning art,
            But conscience sits a witness in thy heart,
              Which will disturb thy peace, the rest undo,
                For that is witness, judge, and prison too.
      - [Conscience]

Under the tricolor, long khaki files of them
  Through the Etoile, down the Champs Elysees
    Marched, while grisettes blew their kisses to miles of them,
      And only the old brushed the tear stains away--
        Out where the crows spread their ominous pinions
          Shadowing France from Nancy to Fay,
            Singing they marched 'gainst the Kaiser's gray minions,
              Singing the song of boyhood at play.
      - The Boys Who Never Grew Up,
        to the Foreign Legion, written on the Somme, Dec., 1916
        [Soldiers]
