Murat
By Lord Byron (1788–1824)
 
(See full text.)

THERE, where death’s brief pang was quickest,
And the battle’s wreck lay thickest,
Strewed beneath the advancing banner
  Of the eagles’ burning crest—
There with thunder-clouds to fan her        5
  Victory beaming from her breast!
While the broken line enlarging
  Fell, or fled along the plain:—
There be sure Murat was charging!
  There he ne’er shall charge again!        10
