9. Epitaph For The Unknown Heroes

Here brothers lie forever stilled
Their bodies torn by beast they killed
They gave their lives for lands of ours-
For us they gave their finest hours.

Oh, brothers two in robes of blue!
We owe our lives and lands to you!
You came from lands far in the West-
Let Eastern soil give you fair rest.

One of you wielded mighty sword-
Was it you smote down the Dark Lord?
One of you wielded mighty staff-
You were the wheat, we are the chaff.

Though names, alas, we never knew-
We pledge to never forget you.
We owe our lives and lands to you,
Oh, brothers two in robes of blue!

Two riders came into our lands
They held our freedom in their hands
They kept it safe, their hearts were true
Those unnamed heroes robed in blue...
