I had never noticed how actually interesting - and beautiful - this poem was until I read it like this - as a normal poem, without the tune US national anthem. (Not that I dislike the tune) If you never really noticed this poem before (even if you sang or heard it a thousand times) try to forget the tune and rythm and read it to your self as close to prose as possible, you might have a pleasant surprise - as I did.
