A Tourist  At Gettysburg




          The beauty of this place
                     Is defined by green
          And the specialness of blue
          And the quietness of still marble
                     On an autumn afternoon

          But the power of this place
                     Is forged in red
          The fire of blood burned in battle
          Of souls torn from flesh by steel
                     And long hours of agonizing death
