Whose power shed round him in the common strife,
Or mild concerns of ordinary life,
A constant influence, a peculiar grace;
This is the happy Warrior; this is he
Whom every Man in arms should wish to be.

My grandfather is no more. These are lines from Character Of The Happy Warrior by William Wordsworth, one of his favourite poems. RIP.
