AD NON CONSCRIPTUM - Robert Stanley Weir Poems


Poems » robert stanley weir » ad non conscriptum


Not for the fame of it,
But for the shame of it,
You crossed the sea.
Knowing the need of men,
You of the breed of men,
Recking the rede of men,
    Cried out: Send me.

Not for this land alone,
Or King's command alone,
You bore your part.
Hearing the shout of France,
You sped like knight with lance
For maid's deliverance:
    You, great of heart.
