- The Englishman and Other Poems - 12/12 -


To make your deeds grace it; to try And uphold its precepts for ever, Is harder by far than to die. For the battle of life is unending, The enemy, Self, never tires, And the true Knight must slay that sly foe every day, Ere he reaches the heights he desires.

Sir Knight, have you pondered the meaning Of all you have heard and been told? Have you strengthened your heart for its weaning From vices and faults loved of old? Will you honour, in hours of temptation, Your promises noble and grand? Will your spirit be strong to do battle with wrong, 'And, having done all, to stand'?

Will you ever be true to a brother In actions as well as in creed? Will you stand by his side as no other Could stand, in the hour of his need? Will you boldly defend him from peril, And lift from him poverty's curse - Will the promise of old, which you willingly made, Reach down from your lips to your purse?

The world's battle-field is before you: Let Wisdom walk close by your side, Let Faith spread her snowy wings o'er you, Let Truth be your comrade and guide; Let Fortitude, Justice, and Mercy Direct all your conduct aright, And let each word and act tell to men the proud fact, You are worthy the name of 'Sir Knight.'
