|Excerpt from The Invasion of Maryland: And Other Verses
The Invasion of Maryland
The Shenandoah peacefully;
Flows on its lovely way;
Its placid bosom faithfully
Reflects sweet nature's greenery
This blue arched summer day.
But down the valley flows a stream
That puts fair peace to flight,
An army from whose muskets gleam;
In shattered sparkles morning's beam,
And glints the evening light.
'Tis Early's forces hurrying on
To pierce the nation's heart,
To strike defenseless Washington
Whose hosts by fatal chance have gone
Wide as the winds apart.
From out these marchers one we choose,
Lieutenant Ashley was his name,
His faded diary to use
As subject to the pitying muse,
To sing the soldier's fame.
