‘Tis with valour those souls have fought
That shine the staves that bards have wrought;
Thus their honours written sound the bell
That onward tolls a timeless knell!
 
As casualties chime a continuous toll
Time best resounds the valorous soul,
Thus tempests breach then onward tell
The tale bestowed a timeless knell.
 
Knights, chieftains, warriors bold,
Accounts of ye we yet behold,
For odes and elegies toll the bell
That honours thee a timeless knell.
 
Conveyed art thee in fields of stone,
Souls of praise and souls unknown,
But while we toll that silent bell,
We laud to thee a timeless knell.
 
Alas I praise thee those of sacrifice,
Thus untimely blessed in paradise,
By thee I now dwell to toll that bell
That merits thee a timeless knell!

(2009)
