Here manhood struggles for the sake
     Of mother, sister, daughter, wife,
The graces and the loves which make
     The music of the march of life;
And woman, in her daily round
     Of duty, walks on holy ground.
No unpaid menial tills the soil, nor here
     Is the bad lesson learned at human rights to sneer.
