The Conquest

The Conquest.(1)


THE Son of Love and Lord of War I sing;
Him who bade England bow to Normandy,
And left the name of Conqueror more than King
To his unconquerable dynasty.
Not fanned alone by Victory's fleeting wing,
He reared his bold and brilliant throne on high;
The Bastard kept, like lions, his prey fast,
And Britain's bravest Victor was the last.


March 8-9, 1823.

FOOTNOTE:

(1) (This fragment was found amongst Lord Byron's papers, after his departure from Genoa for Greece.)

Journal In Cephalonia
THE dead have been awakened--shall I sleep? The World's at war with tyrants--shall I crouch? The harvest's ripe--and shall I pause to reap? I slumber not; the thorn is in my Couch; Each day a trumpet soundeth in mine ear, Its echo in my heart----June 19, 1823.(The end)Lord Byron's poem: Journal In Cephalonia
