To An Athlete Dying Young By: A.E. Housman Presented By: Bailee Callens :)

Slide 2:

The time you won your town the race

Slide 3:

We chaired you through the marketplace

Slide 4:

Man and boy stood cheering by ,

Slide 5:

And home we brought you shoulder-high.

Slide 6:

To-day, the road all runners come,

Slide 7:

Shoulder-high we bring you home ,

Slide 8:

And set you at your threshold down,

Slide 9:

Townsman of a stiller town.

Slide 10:

Smart lad, to slip betimes away

Slide 11:

From fields where glory does not stay,

Slide 12:

And early through the laurel grows

Slide 13:

It withers quicker than a rose.

Slide 14:

Eyes the shady night has shut

Slide 15:

Cannot see the record cut,

Slide 16:

And silence sounds no worse than cheers

Slide 17:

After earth has stopped the ears.

Slide 18:

Now you will not swell the rout

Slide 19:

Of lads that wore their honor out,

Slide 20:

Runner whom renown outran

Slide 21:

And the name died before the man.

Slide 22:

So set, before its echoes fade,

Slide 23:

The fleet foot on the sill of shade,

Slide 24:

And hold to the low lintel up

Slide 25:

The still-defended challenge-cup.

Slide 26:

And round that early-laurelled head

Slide 27:

Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead,

Slide 28:

And find unwithered on its curls

Slide 29:

The garland briefer than a girl’s.
