What Place Is Besieged?
by Walt Whitman.
What place is besieged, and vainly tries to raise the siege?
Lo, I send to that place a commander, swift, brave, immortal,
And with him horse and foot, and parks of artillery,
And artillery-men, the deadliest that ever fired gun.
|from Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman|
|I Hear America Singing (Leaves of Grass)||Still Though the One I Sing|
