The Cavalier's March To London

To horse! to horse! brave Cavaliers!
To horse for Church and Crown!
Strike, strike your tents! snatch up your spears!
And ho for London town!

Depiction so realistic. Thanks
Nicely presented the courageious depiction on battle. Have congratulation.
Never read a battle described so lucidly.
Of bench and woolsack, tub and chair, We'll build a glorious pyre, And tons of rebel parchment there Shall crackle in the fire. With them shall perish, cheek by jowl, Petition, psalm and libel, The Colonel's canting muster-roll, The Chaplain's dog-ear'd Bible. Nice poem.... Thanks for sharing...
The glory of the battle hymn; the yearning, mournful song of reverie; neither can quench the acrid stench of war's hellacious harvest, or fill the empty arms of mother's and wives.
Maze, blaze! The voice of her dismay! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
