Farewell to barn and stack and treeA
Farewell to Severn shoreB
Terence look your last at meA
For I come home no moreB
-
The sun burns on the half mown hillC
By now the blood is driedD
And Maurice amongst the hay lies stillC
And my knife is in his sideD
-
My mother thinks us long awayE
'Tis time the field were mownF
She had two sons at rising dayE
To night she'll be aloneF
-
And here's a bloody hand to shakeG
And oh man here's good byeH
We'll sweat no more on scythe and rakeG
My bloody hands and IH
-
I wish you strength to bring you prideD
And a love to keep you cleanF
And I wish you luck come LammastideD
At racing on the greenF
-
Long for me the rick will waitD
And long will wait the foldD
And long will stand the empty plateD
And dinner will be coldD

A. E. Housman
