The Blue And The Gray

Sadly, but not with upbraiding,
The generous deed was done,
In the storm of the years that are fading
No braver battle was won:
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the judgment-day;
Under the blossoms, the Blue,
Under the garlands, the Gray
-excerpt from The Blue And The Gray by Francis Miles Finch (1827-1907)
