    The Last Defeat

    Across the field of day
    In sudden blazon lay
    The pallid bar of gold
    Borne on the shield of day.
    Night had endured so long,
    And now the Day grew strong
    With lance of light to hold
    The Night at bay.

    So on my life's dull night
    The splendour of your light
    Traversed the dusky shield
    And shone forth golden bright.
    Your colours I have worn
    Through all the fight forlorn,
    And these, with life, I yield,
    To-night, to Night.
