With Trust

Let us hear no more of winning
   Or victory — with trust
There can be no new beginning:
   Once broken, all is dust.

Though the rock of trust is strong,
   And poised atop a hill,
Though its traitors labour long,
   What glory in the kill?

Should we leave its ruins glowing,
   What fortress did we swarm?
For the strength of trust is knowing
   There is no gate to storm.
