I Am A Brave Heart (Villanelle)


I am a brave heart and I have no fear

Truly I stand in the midst of danger without a flinch

I shiver as I grip my spear

People die all throughout the year

And if my moment is coming, why should I shrink away?

I am a brave heart and I have no fear

My friend was thrust though by a steer

He lost such blood he would not part his eyelids again

I shiver as I grip my spear


I will turn eighteen next year

Some say I am a firebrand and I’ll not disagree

I am a brave heart and I have no fear


Men wielding knives at the front, and bowers at the rear

Surely, now I am older, I am ready for my first fight?

I shiver as I grip my spear


The war hour is close and the enemy is near

I can’t brave this one I can’t flee from here

I shiver as I grip my spear

I am a brave heart and I have no fear
