And swift of foot misfortune is, and, far
Outstripping all, comes to every read more

But strong of limb
And swift of foot misfortune is, and, far

O friends, be men, and let your hearts be strong,
And let no warrior in the heat of fight

Than fall in battle, while with those who flee
Is neither glory nor reprieve from death.
