Colin MacLear
June Crown, AS XXXV (2000)

You’ll march onto the Battlefield
A kingdom for to win
A crown upon your consorts head
And Royalty your kin
On the field we fight for honor and glory
Would you be remembered in song and story
You’ll strive upon the Battlefield
With all your might and main
Your foemen all you’ll force to yield
And ne’er you can be slain
On the field we fight for honor and glory
Would you be remembered in song and story
And some they have performed this deed
Their honor full in hand
Beloved of their people
And renowned throughout the land
On the field we fight for honor and glory
Would you be remembered in song and story
And some may come unto a throne
Through treachery or vice
But broken honor stains a reign
The crown’s not worth that price
On the field we fight for honor and glory
How would you be remembered in song and story?


This is from Colin's CD and accompanying booklet "Bardic Fire", which contains pieces that Colin created and performed during his tenure as Bard of the West.
