We read this poem in High School in Charleston in 1970, never really giving it any credence. It is the perfect poem for a military funeral of ANY kind. At my funeral, I want this poem read and Gordon Lightfoot's " Don Quixote" played to a silent congregation.
Hi there, I find it hard to understand the poem starting with these lines: I stooped from star-bright regions where/ Thou canst not enter even in prayer... Can anybody give me a clue what is hidden in these lines? What did Henry Timrod stand for in his lifetime? I am grateful for a kind reply. Best wishes from Cologne/Germany Asmus
