Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Four: Time and Eternity

CII


BLESS God, he went as soldiers,
  His musket on his breast;
Grant, God, he charge the bravest
  Of all the martial blest.
  
Please God, might I behold him        5
  In epauletted white,
I should not fear the foe then,
  I should not fear the fight.
