Σελίδα 297 - Except now and then a stray picket Is shot, as he walks on his beat, to and fro, By a rifleman hid in the thicket.

All quiet along the Potomac...
Σελίδα 184 - And there he lies, with his blue eyes dim, And the smiling, childlike lips apart. Tenderly bury the fair young dead, Pausing to drop on his grave a tear ; Carve on the wooden slab at his head, " Somebody's darling slumbers here.

Σελίδα 274 - ... the tented field, or on the bloody plains of Manassas, where you gained the well-deserved reputation of having decided the fate of the battle. Throughout the broad extent of country over which you have marched, by your respect for the rights and...
Σελίδα 183 - Somebody's darling ! so young and so brave, Wearing still on his pale, sweet face — Soon to be hid by the dust of the grave — The lingering light of his boyhood's grace.
Σελίδα 298 - Leaped up to his lips — when low-murmured vows Were pledged to be ever unbroken. Then drawing his sleeve roughly over his eyes, He dashes off tears that are welling, And gathers his gun closer up to its place As if to keep down the heart-swelling. He passes the fountain, the blasted...
