WOVEN IN THE
YORK EXHIBITION,

Right onward she went till she staggered and dropped,
But her limbs only failed when her heart pulse had stopped;
May the steed that comes nigh her in courage and fire;
Carry rider more worthy to make her heart tire;
Though she saved him, and died to prove what she could do,
Yet her life was most precious by far of the two.
Eliza Cook.
