Beneath the trees I lounged at ease

And watched them speed the pace;

They swerved and swung, they clutched and clung,

They leapt in roaring chase;

The crowd was thrilled, a chap was killed:

It was a splendid race.




Two men, they say, went West that day,

But I knew only one;

Geranium-red his blood was spread

And blazoned in the sun;

A lighting crash . . . Lo! in a flash

His racing days were done.



I did not see - such sights to me

Appallingly are grim;

But for a girl of sunny curl

I would not mention him,

That English lad with grin so glad,

And racing togs so trim.



His motor bike was painted like

A postal box of ed.

'Twas gay to view . . . "We bought it new,"

A voice beside me said.

"Our little bit we blew on it

The day that we were wed.



"We took a chance: through sunny France

We flashed with flaunting power.

With happy smiles a hundred miles

Or more we made an hour.

Like flame we hurled into a world

A-foam with fruit and flower.



"Our means were small; we risked them all

This famous race to win,

So we can take a shop and make

Our bread - one must begin.

We're not afraid; Jack has his trade:

He's bright as brassy pin.



"Hark! Here they come; uphill they hum;

My lad has second place;

They swing, they roar, they pass once more,

Now Jack sprints up the pace.

They're whizzing past . . . At last, at last

He leads - he'll win the race.



Another round . . . They leap, they bound,

But - where O where is he?"

And then the girl with sunny curl

Turned chalk-faced unto me,

Within her eyes a wild surmise

It was not good to see.



They say like thunder-bold he crashed

Into a wall of stone;

To bloody muck his face was mashed,

He died without a moan;

In borrowed black the girl went back

To London Town alone.



Beneath the trees I longed at ease

And saw them pep the pace;

They swerved and swung, they clutched and clung

And roaring was the chase:

Two men, they say, were croaked that day -

It was a glorious race.
