Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


Additional Poems. 20. I Shall Not Die for You


I shall not die for you,
        Another fellow may;
Good lads are left and true
        Though one departs away.
        But he departs to-day
And leaves his work to do,
        For I was luckless aye
And shall not die for you.
