"To fight aloud, is very brave..."
by Emily Dickinson

To fight aloud, is very brave--
But gallanter, I know
Who charge within the bosom
The Calvalry of Woe--

Who win, and nations do not see--
Who fall--and none observe--
Whose dying eyes, no Country
Regards with patriot love--

We trust, in plumed procession
For such, the Angels go--
Rank after Rank, with even feet--
And Uniforms of Snow.
