Excerpt from The Early Poems of Oliver Wendell Holmes

Our ancient church its lowly tower, Beneath the loftier spire, Is shadowed when the sunset hour Clothes the tall shaft in fire; It sinks beyond the distant eye, Long ere the glittering vane, High wheeling in the western sky, Has faded o'er the plain.

Like Sentinel and Nun, they keep Their vigil on the green One seems to guard, and one to weep, The dead that lie between And both roll out, SO full and near, Their music's mingling waves, They shake the grass, whose pennoned spear Leans on the narrow graves.
