In the Hall

Many a man, when set at mead
Among those thanes in hall
His keen mindís no comfort
If past his fill he does fare
And loosens his mind overmuch
Carelessness hovers a sloshing horn
Ill-spoke words bring only shame
And a heavy debt one must pay

Many a man, when set at mead
Among those thanes in hall
Much bigger he seems
To his own clouded mind
And laughter advises him not
Caution aside he pounds his chest
And babbles about his deeds
Yet the loudest bench-men
Are not always the bravest
Heroes often watch in silence.
