The Flag (Poem by Walter Whitman)

Famous Poem


The Flag
By Walter Whitman


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 ships!
O to see you peering down on the sailors on the decks!
Flag like the eyes of women.
