The Cavalry of Woe

snow cemetery 013

 

Here is a poem by Emily Dickinson:

#138

To fight aloud, is very brave –

But gallanter, I know

Who charge within the bosom

The Calvalry of Wo –

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.
