From the Rock Island Argus, December 20, 1913.
The bravest man may not be he
Who fights upon the bloody field,
Nor one who ventures daringly
Where waiting outlaws are concealed;
The bravest man may not be one
Who soars a mile above the earth,
Nor one who, while his work is done
Smiles hopefully for all he’s worth.
The bravest of the brave may be
The man who from temptation turns
While knowing there is none to see
The sinful profit that he spurns.
