Now hollow fires burn out to black,
   And lights are guttering low:
Square your shoulders, lift your pack,
   And leave your friends and go.

Oh never fear, man, nought's to dread,
   Look not left nor right:
In all the endless road you tread
   There's nothing but the night.

A.E. Housman, A Shropshire Lad
