Here you will find the Poem Oh Stay At Home, My Lad of poet Alfred Edward Housman

Oh Stay At Home, My Lad

Oh stay at home, my lad, and plough 
The land and not the sea, 
And leave the soldiers at their drill, 
And all about the idle hill 
Shepherd your sheep with me. 

Oh stay with company and mirth 
And daylight and the air; 
Too full already is the grave 
Of fellows that were good and brave 
And died bacause they were.
