The Poetry of American Wars:  The Poetry of American Wars by H. C. Dorn The Battle of Concord Bridge:  The Battle of Concord Bridge Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882:  Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882 Slide4:  By the rude bridge that arched the flood, Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled, Here once the embattled farmers stood, And fired the shot heard round the world. Slide5:  The foe long since in silence slept; Alike the conqueror silent sleeps; And time the ruined bridge has swept Down the dark stream that seaward creeps. Slide6:  On this green bank, by this soft stream, We set today a votive stone; That memory may their deed redeem, When like our sires,our sons are gone. Slide7:  Spirit, that made those heroes dare To die, and leave their children free, Bid time and Nature gently spare The shaft we raise to them and thee. Emerson War of 1812:  War of 1812 The Star -Spangled Banner:  The Star -Spangled Banner Slide10:  Star-Spangled Banner Oh, say can you see, By the dawn’s early light, What so proudly we hailed a the twilight’s last gleeming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? Slide11:  And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say, does that star -spangled banner yet wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave! Slide12:  …...4th Verse Oh thus be it ever when freeman shall stand Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation; Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land Praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation! Slide13:  Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: “in God is our trust” And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave, O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave! Francis Scott Key 1779-1843 Civil War 1861 -1865:  Civil War 1861 -1865 Slide17:  Gettysburg It doesn’t hurt a bit to be shot in a wooden leg. - Lt. Gen. Richard S. Ewell, CSA It is a swelling and falling away of ground, Stones and stone, the trees are lined up along the wall, And an accumulation of names. Gettysburg has an echo Like a shout in rocks. You hear it even when you look away. Say Spangler’s Spring or Culp’s Hill, The Round Tops , the Angle, Say the Devil’s Den, Slide18:  Say Cemetery Hill, Fifty Thousand hit in July, Down in Pennsylvania Farm dirt. Richard Dillard felt his leg collapse With a bright stain like a fallen flag. Home is just over the hill, they said, And two year later it was. We’ll fight them till hell freezes over, And then, sir, we will fight them on the ice. Too bad, Lee said, too bad. Oh, too bad. And then the rain Slid down the butts of rifles, Down the barrels and bayonet blades And into the ground the first drops Dancing into the dust like live things, Then a rush that laid all dust to rest. Slide19:  The real war was somewhere to the west. This one was only a dream, a spring Of dreams, dreams that still splash Like living things on the ground. It is ground and grass, A piling up of names like stones, It is earth and air, a place to live. You can move through echoes without a glance Or drop them like postcards into the box To be sent on with best wishes. Or you can walk out Wainwright Avenue Past Hancock on his horse, and Slocum, Slowly, thinking of another day, other days, Watch the high clouds circle like birds And hold hands or not this day, as you will. Slide20:  You fill the muscles in your legs Climbing Culp’s Hill, climbing the tower On Culp’s Hill, feel the blood moving In them like slow ice or warm as plowed ground. Names fade in this accumulation of air. You can see the day turn through the clouds. If you need to remember anything, It is the best way home. R. H. W. Dillard In A New Pleiade LSU Press 1998 Slide21:  Gettysburg Address Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note , nor long remember what we say here; but it can never forget what they did here. Slide22:  It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated to the unfinished work which they that fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us, that from these honored dead we take increased devotion; that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Abraham Lincoln November 19, 1863 World War I 1914-1918:  World War I 1914-1918 Slide24:  An Irish Airman Forsees His Death I know that I will meet my fate Somewhere among the clouds above; Those that I fight I do not hate, Those that I guard I do not love; My country is Kiltartan Cross, My countrymen Kiltartan’s poor, No likely end could bring them loss Or leave them happier than before. Nor law, nor duty bade me fight, Nor public men, nor cheering crowds, A lonely impulse of delight Slide25:  Drove to this tumult in the clouds; I balanced all, brought all to mind, The years to come seemed waste of breath, A waste of breath the years behind In balance with this life, this death. William Butler Yeats 1865-1939 Slide26:  In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks , still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie in Flanders Fields. Slide27:  Take up our quarrel with the foe; To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields. Lieutenant-Colonel John McRae Died in France January 28, 1918 World War II 1939-1945:  World War II 1939-1945 Slide29:  The War in the Air For a saving grace, we didn’t see our dead, Who rarely bothered to come home to die But simply stayed away out there In the clean war, the war in the air. Seldom the ghosts came back bearing their tales Of hitting the earth, the incompressible sea, But staying up their in the relative wind, Shades falling in the mind, Slide30:  Who had no graves but only epitaphs, Where never so many spoke for so few: Per Ardua, said the partisans of Mars, Per Aspera, to the stars. That was the good war, the war we won As if there were no death, for goodness’ sake, With the help of the losses we left out there In the air, in the empty air. Howard Nemerov 1920-1991 In Contemporay American Poetry J. D. McClatchy, ed. Slide31:  No Holy Wars for Them States strong enough to do good are few. Their number would seem limited to three Good is a thing that they, the great, can do, But puny little states can only be. Slide32:  And being good for these means standing by To watch a war in nominal alliance, And when it’s over watch the world’s supply Get parceled out among the winning giants Slide33:  God, have you taken cognizance of this? And what is your fine position? That nations like the Cuban and the Swiss Can never hope to wage a Global Mission. Slide34:  No Holy Wars for them. The most the small Can ever give us is a nuisance brawl. Robert Frost in The Poetry of Robert Frost Edward Connery Lathem, ed. The Gulf War:  The Gulf War Slide36:  Sparrows A pilot chalks one of his missiles,“For Debra.” She waits there under his wing, a sparrow. In Shinkichi’s Takahashi’s eye, sparrows circle into world without end, without beginning. Maybe the pilot and his Debra, even before Kitty Hawk, Will someday celebrate Christmas with their four children In this village where I live in hiding. I throw seed under a pine for sparrows and morning doves Who may themselves be Debra in other incarnations….. Slide37:  How many sparrows can we pack under our wings Or set dancing like angels on the head of a pin Before the stars fall, and we lose everything? William Heyen From Ribbons The Gulf War 1991 Slide38:  At the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Washington, D.C. Chrissie Slide39:  In the shade of a maple. She sits on the ground. At a distance From the wall- looking at a Name she knows is there. Her father’s. Killed near Khe Sanh. Two months before she Was born. Sixteen years ago. “You look exactly like him,” She is told. And she does- She knows from her mother’s photo-album. But today she Sits contemplating his love for Her. Her love for him. So much a part of her. Slide40:  Growing-up beautiful. But Without his seeing her, Holding her…without Hearing him call her name. The handsome First Lieutenant… Who would have been so Proud of her. Her dad. Eugene E. Grollmes in “From Both Sides Now” P. Mahoney, ed.
