It was not in
the open fight

“The Rout of the White Hussars”

It was not in the open fight 
We threw away the sword, 
But in the lonely watching 
In the darkness by the ford.
The waters lapped, the night-wind blew,
Full-armed the Fear was born and grew, 
And we were flying ere we knew
From panic in the night.
