from: The House of the Wolfings

"Dear now are this dawn-dusk's moments
as is the last of the light
When the foemen's ranks are wavering,
and the victory feareth night;
And of all the time I have loved thee
of these am I most fain,
When I know not what shall betide me,
nor what shall be my gain.
But dear as they are, they are waning,
and at last the time is come
When no more shall I behold thee
till I wend to Odin's Home. "

William Morris (1834-1896)
