~ Historical & Classical Poetry ~


Rash war and perilous battle, their delight;
And immature, and red with glorious wounds,
Unpeaceful death their choice: deriving thence
A right to feast and drain immortal bowls,
In Odinís hall; whose blazing roof resounds
The genial uproar of those shades who fall
In desperate fight, or by some brave attempt.

Quote from "Liberty" (Part IV, Britain),
poem by James Thomson, 1700-1748
