To fight aloud, is very brave--
But gallanter, I know
Who charge within the bosom
The Calvary 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 Angel go--
Rank after Rank, with even feet--
And Uniforms of Snow.

Emily Dickinson

  1. I have always loved this poem. And I think it is because it has a lot of gospel truth. I would rather be with someone who is good, and kind than someone who is popular or clever.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. this is fantastic.

    i remember discovering emily dickinson when i was around 15 years old. it was like opening the gates of paradise.
