Within The Alamo

Rating: 3.5

He drew a straight line
Across the dirt floor:
Within, it was death-still--
Without, was a roar
And a scream of the trumpets:
Within, was a Word--
And a line drawn clean
By the sweep of a sword.
No help was coming, now--
That hope was done.

This is a great poem! If you watch the newest movie on the alamo, titled, 'The Alamo', you will see that this movie left out the scence portrayed by this poem which loses some of the courage and bravey always know in the story of the alamo. Besides that, this is a poem that carrys lots of imagery and gives you a good feeling inside! Jake Pappas P.S. Remember The Alamo! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
