BATTLE, by            
First Line: Bright as moon serenely burning
Last Line: Halo, circled him about.

Bright as moon serenely burning,
Brave as lion: so he burst
Where the mills of war were turning
And the battle raged its worst.

As I saw the lances gleaming
Round his brow, I was in doubt
If a forest, or a beaming
Halo, circled him about.
