FOR THE NEW YEAR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Are you sheltered, curled up and content by your world's warm fire?
Last Line: Out to some battle.
Subject(s): Holidays; New Year


Are you sheltered, curled up and content by your world's warm fire?
Then I say that your soul is in danger,
The sons of the Light, they are down with God in the mire,
God in the manger.

So rouse from your perilous ease; to your sword and your shield!
Your ease is the ease of the cattle!
Hark, hark, where the bugles are calling: out to some field—
Out to some battle.
