Excerpt from My Jim, and Other War Poems My Jim. Did you see that handsome soldier, in his uniform so neat, With a flag upon his shoulder, come marching down the street?The one so tall and manly, with such a good, kind face -I'm sure it would be hard to find a man to take his place.That's My Jim! The one so proud and happy, with such a princely air -He said: If men are needed, I surely will be there. He didn't wait a moment, when they asked for men to fight, But said: I'll serve my country; the cause is just and right. That's My Jim! He has a loving sweetheart - a girl so pure and true -And when he said Goodbye to her she said: I'd die for you;But we must serve our country, our flag we must defend, Tho in saving it from danger, we lose our dearest friend. That's My Jim! I kw she will be faithful - girl could help but be, Who had the love and hor of such a man as he.'Twas hard to see him going, I thought my heart would break;We can even give our loved ones for our dear country's sake.Even My Jim!
