May I fall on some great day,
With Freedom's banner streaming o'er me!
Live but to shout for the victory,
And see the rout roll on before me,
And tyrants, from their greatness torn,
Beneath the scourge of justice smarting,
And gaze on Freedom's glorious morn,
My soul to cheer before departing!
Oh, then my life might melt away;
In visions bright of liberty!

The Warrior's Ode To Death - Samuel Bamford

I didn't know him personally, but we owe him and his warrior mates for our "visions bright of liberty" - RIP
