And left us hopeless and stranded.

their flesh counts every plank
the slats leave dents of darkness
deep in their withered flanks.

For passing round the bottle with girls in rags or silk,
In country shawl or Paris cloak, had put my wits astray,
And what's the good of women, for all that they can say

With sabres gleaming ready for the fight.
Not increased navies, skillful and commanding,
To bound the waters with an iron might.

Peace

And sometimes I am sorry when the grass
Is growing over the stones in quiet hollows
And the cocksfoot leans across the rutted cart-pass
That I am not the voice of country fellows

Sweet are the nights in careless slumber spent;
The poor estate scorns Fortune's angry frown.

We’ve learnt the language but we are never those country men!
Here only the family name matters

Six fences grim as were ever seen,
And it's there I would be with fox and hound.

Got a fall and broke his shoulder, so they nabbed me in a trice,
