Here's to Our Absent Brothers
  To dear ones a-far and a-bove,
    Their faults we write upon the sands,
      Their virtues on tablets of love.

        Absent but not for-got-ten;
          For them we will sing the old line:
            "Should old ac-quaint-ance be for-got,
              In the days of Auld Lang Syne."
