A HERO'S HOMCOMING

With muffled drum
The drummer beats his 
Requiem
^
Whilst pipers play
Their mournful 
Tune
^
In deep respect
For one taken so soon
^
As casket adorned 
In Flowers bold 
Try
Shielding
The world from 
Horrors untold
^
A
Silent throng
With heads solemnly 
Bowed
Cast tears of regret
On to sovereign ground
^
Whilst Women sob 
And 
Grown men cry
^
As If a Final 
lullaby,
