The verse Lt. Forsythe recites in the dungeon is from a poem by William Ernest Henley, entitled 'England, My England'. This is the complete poem: "What have I done for you, / England, my England? / What is there I would not do, / England, my own? / With your glorious eyes austere, / As the Lord were walking near, / Whispering terrible things and dear / As the Song on your bugles blown, / England - / Round the world on your bugles blown! Where shall the watchful sun, / England, my England, / Match the master-work you've done, / England, my own? / When shall he rejoice agen / Such a breed of mighty men / As come forward, one to ten, / To the Song on your bugles blown, / England - / Down the years on your bugles blown? Ever the faith endures, / England, my England: - / 'Take and break us: we are yours, / England, my own! / Life is good, and joy runs high / Between English earth and sky: / Death is death; but we shall die / To the Song of your bugles blown, / England - / To the stars on your bugles blown!' They call you proud and hard, / England, my England: / You with worlds to watch and ward, / England, my own! / You whose mail'd hand keeps the keys / Of such teeming destinies, / You could know nor dread nor ease / Were the Song on your bugles blown, / England - / Round the Pit on your bugles blown!
