Come, let no darkness daunt us. Let us go
Where Cornwall Village dreams not far below
And on their obelisk read how Truman Lane Died in the Wilderness;
Stillman Smith was slain At Donelson;
and at Cold Harbor Captain Samson (sic).
Then, strangely, Alva Barlow
'Hung by Guerrillas!' -- the stone does not say where.
Perhaps it's not a monument's affair.
But I'll weep -- even for Alva -- if you can weep
For him, for all, for Southern boys asleep
Like these your fathers may somewhere have known.
