Poemsby Emily Dickinson

XVI

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