A Canadian child's ABC, Page 54



WITH muffled oars upstream they crept,

Wolfe and his men, on that dark night.

They clambered up the narrow path,

And morning found them on the height.

And New France fell, and Montcalm died,

And what France lost old England won;

But Wolfe, thrice wounded, only lived

To hear with dying ears: “They run.”
