"I see them on their winding way" by Bishop Reginald Herber

I see them on their winding way 


I see them on their winding wayBiography of Reginald Herber
About their ranks the moonbeams play.Description of the poem's formal elements
Their lofty deeds and daring highExplication of poem
Blend with the notes of victory, 
And waving arms and banners bright 
are glancing in the mellow light 
They're lost and gone - the moon is past 
The dark wood's shade is oer them cast, 
And fainter, fainter fainter still 
The march is rising o'er the hill - rising 
  oer the hill - rising oer the hill. 
I see them on their winding way. &c 

Again, again, the pealing drum 
The clashing horn, they come! they come!
Thro' rocky pass, o'er wooded steep, 
In long and glittering files they sweep, 
  and nearer, nearer, yet more near - 
Their softened chorus meets the ear 
Forth, forth, and meet them on their
The trampling hoofs brook no delay
With thrilling fife and pealing drum 
And clashing horn they come, they
They come, they come, they come, they come!
I see them on their winding way &c
