Wilson: I Will Stand Here With You

“Beowulf, dear and dauntless, do what you do,
As when young, yearning for glory, you vowed great things,
Saying you would not waver, and that while life was in you,
Your glory would not go. Now, great in heroics,
Prince of high prowess, protect your life
With all your stated strength. I will stand here with you.”

– Douglas Wilson, Beowulf: A New Verse Rendering
