General George S Patton Jnr Poems

Perhaps I stabbed our Savior
In His sacred helpless side.
Yet I've called His name in blessing
...

God of our Father, who by land and sea has ever

Led us on to victory, please continue your inspiring
...

3.

When all hearts are opened,

And all the secrets known,
...

From pride and foolish confidence,
From every waking creed,
From the dread fear of fearing,
Protect us, Lord, and lead.
...

5.

I am that dreadful, blighting thing,

Like rat holes to the flood.
...

The road of the battle languished,

The hate from the guns was still,
...

They died for France like countless thousands more

Who, in this war, have faltered not to go
...

Not midst the chanting of the Requiem Hymn,

Nor with the solemn ritual of prayer,
...

As Head of the Division of Provision for Revision

Was a man of prompt decision--Morton Quirk.
...

You can't remember, dearest

For your memory fades too fast,
...

I stood in the flag-decked cheering crowd
Where all but I were gay,
And gazing on their extesy,
My heart shrank in dismay.
...

Dickey, we've trained and fit and died,

Yes, drilled and drunk and bled,
...

The column winds on snake-like,

Through blistering, treeless spaces;
...

The Best Poem Of General George S Patton Jnr

Through A Glass Darkly,

Perhaps I stabbed our Savior
In His sacred helpless side.
Yet I've called His name in blessing
When in after times I died.

Through the travail of the ages
Midst the pomp and toil of war
Have I fought and strove and perished
Countless times upon this star.

I have sinned and I have suffered
Played the hero and the knave
Fought for belly, shame or country
And for each have found a grave.

So as through a glass and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names - but always me.

So forever in the future
Shall I battle as of yore,
Dying to be born a fighter
But to die again once more.
