Contents: Beyond the moor and mountain crest --
As I gird on for fighting --
Her strong enchantments failing --
Oh hard is the bed they have made him --
The queen she sent to look for me --
I 'listed at home for a lancer --
In valleys green and still --
Soldier from the wars returning --
The chestnut casts his flambeaux, and the flowers --
Could man be drunk forever --
Yonder see the morning blink --
The laws of God, the laws of man --
What sound awakened me, I wonder --
The night my father got me --
He stood, and heard the steeple --
Star and coronal and bell --
The wain upon the northern steep --
The rain, it streams on stone and hillock --
In midnights of November --
The night is freezing fast --
The fairies break their dances --
The slow was lost in flower --
In the morning, in the morning --
He is here, Urania's son --
'Tis mute, the word they went to hear --
The half-moon westers low, my love --
The sigh that heaves the grasses --
Now dreary dawns the eastern light --
Wake not for the world-heard thunder --
I walked alone and thinking --
Onward led the road again --
When I would muse in boyhood --
When the eye of day is shut --
The orchards half the way --
When first my way to fair I took --
West and away the wheels of darkness roll --
These, in the day when heaven was falling --
Oh stay at home, my lad, and plough --
When summer's end is nighing --
Tell me not here, it needs not saying --
When lads were home from labour.
Responsibility: by A.E. Housman.
