    Probably Lord Tennyson's best poem. Very well written, the rhyme scheme is nice and the story easy to understand. Overall, a beautiful poem penned with insight, a lovely piece of poetry. Thanks for sharing and Kudos. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    A classic poem about the unfortunate losses that come from war. It highlights both the courage of the light brigade, and the foolishness of war. Those men, all because of a mistaken command, charged into the valley of death. The tone of the poem is one that honors those men but pulls no punches on the reality of death and war. It's not overly critical of the event itself, so to classify it as anti-war would be wrong, but it's fantastic nonetheless. (Report) Reply
