GEORGE GORDON BYRON: Journal In Cephalonia

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...
