The Solider's last tattoo 

By: Theodore O'Hara

The muffled drum’s sad roll has beat
The soldier’s last tattoo;
No more on life’s parade shall meet
The brave and fallen few.
On fame’s eternal camping-ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards, with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.
