    • "Shiloh, A Requiem" by Herman Melville

      SKIMMING lightly, wheeling still,


      The swallows fly low
      Over the fields in clouded days,
      The forest-field of Shiloh--
      Over the field where April rain
      Solaced the parched one stretched in pain
      Through the pause of night
      That followed the Sunday fight
      Around the church of Shiloh--
      The church so lone, the log-built one,
      That echoed to many a parting groan
      And natural prayer
      Of dying foemen mingled there--
      Foemen at morn, but friends at eve--
      Fame or country least their care:
      (What like a bullet can undeceive!)
      But now they lie low,
      While over them the swallows skim,
      And all is hushed at Shiloh.
