Aslan's roar

The obituary in the British Catholic journal The Tablet has a wonderful poem by a Polish poet of the nineteenth century. The Tablet says the poem was known to John Paul II:

This one will not--Italian-like--take flight
At cannon's roar or sabre thrust
But brave as God himself stand and give fight
Counting the world as dust.
