“Yea! I have lived –
Have felt the husband-kiss upon my lips
Have felt the child’s mouth pull upon my breast;
Have fought Death, have toiled and taken rest,
Have sinned most human sins, have felt the whips
Where conscience struck; have drunk of life
In laughter and in song, in tears that burned,
In Hope that sang, in peace, in plenitude of strife
That germined strength; have lost, and gained,
and learned…”

DAME MARY, GILMORE – Yea I have lived
