To An Athlete Dying Young:

To An Athlete Dying Young By A.E. Housman To an Athlete Dying Young By A.E. Housman

Slide 2:

The time you won your town the race We chaired you through the market-place;

Slide 3:

Man and boy stood cheering by, Man and boy stood cheering by ,

Slide 4:

And home we brought you shoulder-high. And home we brought you shoulder-high .

Slide 5:

To-day, the road all runners come;

Slide 6:

Shoulder-high we bring you home,

Slide 7:

And set you at your threshold down, Townsman of a stiller town.

Slide 8:

Smart lad, to slip betimes away From fields where GLORY does not stay,

Slide 9:

And early though the laurel grows

Slide 10:

It withers quicker than the rose .

Slide 11:

Eyes the SHADY night has shut

Slide 12:

Cannot see the record cut ,

Slide 13:

And SILENCE sounds no worse than cheers After earth has stopped the ears:

Slide 14:

Now you will not swell the rout Of lads that wore their honours out,

Slide 15:

Runners whom renown outran And the name died before the man .

Slide 16:

So set, before its ECHOES fade, The fleet foot on the sill of shade,

Slide 17:

And hold to the low lintel up The still-defended challenge cup.

Slide 18:

And round that early-laurelled head

Slide 19:

Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead,

Slide 20:

And find unwithered on its curls The garland briefer than a girl’s. And find unwithered on its curls The garland briefer than a girl’s.
