- For fame, for fortune fighting - furious fray!
- Generals 'gainst generals grapple - gracious God!
- How honors Heaven heroic hardihood!

- Men march 'mid mounds, 'mid moles, ' mid murderous mines;

- Of outward obstacles, opposing ought;
- Poor patriots, partly purchased, partly pressed,
- Quite quaking, quickly "Quarter! Quarter!" quest.
- Reason returns, religious right redounds,
- Suwarrow stops such sanguinary sounds.
- Truce to thee, Turkey! Triumph to thy train,
- Unwise, unjust, unmerciful Ukraine!
- Vanish vain victory! vanish, victory vain!
- Why wish we warfare? Wherefore welcome were
- Xerxes, Ximenes, Xanthus, Xavier?
- Yield, yield, ye youths! ye yeomen, yield your yell!
