Poem found in Shackleton's hut | 26-May-05

"O mother will you help me then
To practise what I dare to preach
And, shuddering, wash the feet of men
Who dread the soft sands of the beach
O christ, hide not from me thy face
Be thou my comrade - give me grace
To fight the fight and run the race,
And when the blessed end shall come
And I am quitted of my task,
Is it too much, O Christ to ask
That some white sail may bring me home
Where, in the shadow of her dome,
My dust may be the dust of Rome."
