The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1934
Bring them again, O western wind
Back to the Kelburn hill;
Loyal and brave and debonair
Promise! Thy hope fulfil.
Not that we grudge their service done,
Nor scorn their manhood's quest,
Only we mourn their young lives' loss
Gone to a gallant rest.
Bring them again with eager foot
Where flaunts the gold-flowered broom;
Proud hands we stretch to those who come
Weavers from war's grim loom.
—Marjory L. Hannah (née Nicholls).
"The Old Clay Patch," 1920.
