ALAN SEEGER
American poet and soldier killed in action
(1888 - 1916)
  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

I have a rendezvous with Death
  At some disputed barricade.
      - I Have a Rendezvous with Death [Death]

So die as though your funeral
  Ushered you through the doors that led
    Into a stately banquet hall
      Where heroes banqueted.
      - Maktoob [Death]

At Earth's great market where Joy is trafficked in,
  Buy while thy purse yet swells with golden Youth.
      - Ode to Antares (last lines) [Joy]

Spirit of Beauty, whose sweet impulses,
  Flung like the rose of dawn across the sea,
    Alone can flush the exalted consciousness
      With shafts of sensible divinity--
        Light of the world, essential loveliness.
      - Ode to Natural Beauty (st. 2) [Beauty]

From a boy
  I gloated on existence. Earth to me
    Seemed all sufficient and my sojourn there
      One trembling opportunity for joy.
      - Sonnet--I Loved [Life]

There was a stately drama writ
  By the hand that peopled the earth and air,
    And set the stars in the infinite,
      And made night gorgeous and morning fair;
        And all that had sense to reason knew
          That bloody drama must be gone through.
            Some sat and watched how the action veered--
              Waited, profited, trembled, cheered--
                We saw not clearly nor understood,
                  But yielding ourselves to the masterhand,
                    Each in his part as best he could,
                      We played it through as the author planned.
      - The Hosts [War]
