The quick surrender, the brave fight


Old men slowly, helplessly

And peacefully

Enter into the Hall of Death.

Death proudly, deliberately

And triumphantly

Enters into the Life-chambers

Of young men.

O Death, I like the quick surrender

Of the old men,


I love, admire and adore

The brave fight

Of the young men. ```
