Among The Flags

Rating: 3.6

In Doric Hall, Massachussetts State House

Dear witnesses, all-luminous, eloquent,
Stacked thickly on the tessellated floor!
The soldier-blood stirs in me, as of yore
In sire and grandsire who to battle went:
I seem to know the shaded valley tent,
The armed and bearded men, the thrill of war,
Horses that prance to hear the cannon roar,
Shrill bugle-calls, and camp-fire merriment.

On every tarnished staff and tattered fold; And by them, tranquil spirits standing guard...among the independent flags there we, the independent earth dwellers find nothing but the great courageous epic, unspoken heroic deeds, struggle for the own peoples-country of the known unknown soldiers. poet greatly crafted this poem on the honor of true soldiers

Although I don't appreciate the pro war sentiment expressed in this particular poem, I concede that it is exceedingly well written with poignant imagery evident throughout.
