A Martyr’s Death

Edith Cavell Portrait

She who was so young
in the prime of her life,
would go down in history
dying a martyr’s death.

She who gave her life
willingly for her country,
assisting soldiers in need
died, for offering charity.

She will always be remembered
this Norfolk lass; Edith Cavell
her life cruelly taken from her
in a hail of bullets.
