Bivouac of the Dead*
by: Theodore O'Hara

For many of a mother's breath has swept o'er Angostura's plain --
And long the pitying sky has wept above is moldered slain.
The raven's scream, or eagle's flight, or shepherd's pensive lay,
Alone awakes each sullen height that frowned o'er the dead fray.

"Bivouac of the Dead", is displayed at national cemeteries.  Verses shall appear on many of these pages.
