Shieldwall (Rondel)

Forth, to war! The legions we meet:
Sound trumpets, the battle we face!
Serpents to put under our feet
Dragons to slay with sword and mace!

A strong shieldwall stands before me,
Each man, each brother in his place.
Forth to war! The legions we meet:
Sound trumpets, the battle we face!

The bows bent now loosed, arrows streak
Fiery towards us, seeking embrace;
Shafts spent by thousands, all a waste:
The Warrior stands in victory.
Forth, to war! The legions we meet.
