Here’s Many a Year to You

Here’s many a year to you !
Sportsmen who’ve ridden life straight.
Here’s all good cheer to you !
Luck to you early and late.

Here’s to the best of you !
You with the blood and the nerve.
Here’s to the rest of you !
What of a weak moment’s swerve ?
Face the grim fence, gate, or wall again :
Ride hard and straight in the van,
Life is to dare and deserve ! ”

1908. RH Carlisle

Because its blessings are abused, Must gold be censure, cursed, accused? E’en virtue’s self by knaves is made, A cloak to carry on the trade.
