Victoria University College Carnival, 1914
Act I. — Marching Song of the Romans
Marching Song of the Romans.
Twenty miles with the legions to-day,
From the white cliffs of Pectis we come
As straight as the birds winging home;
Twenty miles, twenty miles on our way.
We think of the lands far away,
And the cliffs of Aventum at home;
And the Hearth of the Vestals of Rome,
As we march, as we march on our way.
Past Renta when evening was grey,
With Cæsar to lead us for home;
Where Isca rolls downwards in foam,
Twenty miles with the legions to-day.
Regent Cigarettes Have No Equal.
Regent Cigarettes in Brown and Heliotrope Packets.
And now to the fathers we pray,
When the great British woman shall come;
May the blood be her blood on the loam,
Ere we march with the legions away.
