Jack Layton, Canada's Happy Warrior 


The Happy Warrior:
Who is the happy Warrior? Who is he
That every man in arms should wish to be?
...'Tis, finally, the Man, who, lifted high,
Conspicuous object in a Nation's eye,
...Plays, in the many games of life, that one
Where what he most doth value must be won:
...Who, not content that former worth stand fast,
Looks forward, persevering to the last,
From well to better, daily self-surpast:
Who....Finds comfort in himself and in his cause;
And, while the mortal mist is gathering, draws
His breath in confidence of Heaven's applause:
This is the happy Warrior; this is He
That every Man in arms should wish to be.
