Brothers in Arms

LCSutherland 11/09/16

No greater gift at journey’s end
than sharing starlight with a friend –

than fellowship through kindred plight –
than sakeë ’round the fire at night –

than shoulders brushed with men of worth –
than silent march through darkling firth:

No greater gift may Strife endow
than Brother’s hand to broken brow.

¥

No richer gift at journey’s end?
NhàínSëà! none greater than a friend!


And shall you see me through this fight?
SëàHàí! your shield in kindred plight!

And shall we arm at foeman’s birth?
SëàHàí! with blades full wroth with worth!

And shall you lend me strength enow?
SëàHàí! and bind your broken brow!

¥

No greater gift at journey’s end
than sharing starlight with a friend.

No greater gift may Strife endow
than brother’s hand to broken brow.

dedicated to my father:
Air Force Veteran, Lieutenant Colonel Fader
