“Shiloh: A Requiem (April, 1862)”Herman MelvilleSkimming lightly, wheeling still,The swallows fly lowOver the field in clouded days,The forest-field of Shiloh—Over the field where April rainSolaced the parched ones stretched in painThrough the pause of nightThat followed the Sunday fightAround the church of Shiloh—The church so lone, the log-built one,That echoed to many a parting groanAnd natural prayerOf 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.
