John Maynard

John Maynard
Sie lassen den Sarg in Blumen hinab,
Mit Blumen schließen sie das Grab,
Und mit goldner Schrift in den Marmorstein
Schreibt die Stadt ihren Dankspruch ein:
"Hier ruht John Maynard! In Qualm und Brand
Hielt er das Steuer fest in der Hand,
Er hat uns gerettet, er trägt die Kron,
Er starb für uns, unsre Liebe sein Lohn.
John Maynard."
____________
With layers of flowers the grave they soften.
Under more flowers they bury the coffin.
With golden script in marble stone
The city has its tribute shown:
"Here lies John Maynard! In smoke and fire
He held fast to the wheel; he did not tire.
He saved our lives, our noble king.
He died for us; his praise we sing.
John Maynard!"
