.... Bursting through the gloom
With radiant glory from thy trophied tomb,
The sacred splendour of thy deathless name
Shall

grace and guard thy Country's martial fame.
Far-seen shall blaze the unextinguish'd ray,
A mighty beacon, lighting Glory's way;
With living lustre this proud Land adorn,
And shine and save, through ages yet unborn."

ULM AND TRAFALGAR.
