ONLY A PRIVATE by Margaret Junkin Preston (1820-1897)Only a private -- and who will care When I may pass away, Or how, or why I perish, or where I mix with the common clay? They will fill my empty place again With another as bold and brave; And they'll blot me out ere the autumn rain Has freshened my nameless grave.
