A Cavalier's Toast


Some drink to Friendship, some to Love,—
Through whom the world is fair, perdie!—
But I to one these others prove,
Who leaps 'mid lions for a glove,
Or dies to set another free—
I drink to Loyalty.


No dagger his, no cloak and mask,
Free-faced he stands so all may see;
Let Friendship set him any task,
Or Love—reward he does not ask,
The deed is done whate'er it be—
So here's to Loyalty.
