Bathed in War's Perfume


BATHED in war's perfume—delicate flag! O to hear you call the sailors and the soldiers! flag like  
 a beautiful woman!
O to hear the tramp, tramp, of a million answering men!  
 O the ships they arm with joy!
O to see you leap and beckon from the tall masts of  
O to see you peering down on the sailors on the decks! Flag like the eyes of women.
