Poems to share

To fight aloud is very brave

 

To fight aloud, is very brave –
But gallanter, I know
Who charge within the bosom
The Calvary 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.

Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was an American poet from Amherst, Massachusetts. She wrote a very large number of poems (over 1,800!) but fewer than a dozen of her poems were published while she was alive. Most of her work was discovered after her death and published by her friends.
