When in his deathly thirst and burning pain At Zutphen by the Spanish ball o'erthrown, Young Sydney gives the proffered cup again To one whose need is greater than his own; When from the tent where crouching mortals fight Their desperate cause with death: and all about Rages the horror of the undawning night, A very gallant gentleman goes out: I laugh to scorn philosophers that jibe, Poets and satirists with venomed pen, Cynics and priests and all the embittered tribe That curse through dwarfish lips the sons of men.
