Civil War Poem by: DON ELIAS DOWNING
Written at: Gordon Mills Gap 25 April 1864
TO MY LOVED ONES AT HOME
Away from home how slow the hours pass wearily along.
I feel alone through many men around me throng.
There’s none that looks on me in love wherever I may roam.
I’m longing for thy gentle smiles, my dearest ones at home.
I look around, strange things I see, much that is fair to view.
Men’s art and nature’s handiworks, and all to me is new.
But oh! I feel my joys were more, if while amid these I roam,
It could be shared with those I love, my dearest ones at "home".
Blow, Blow, ye winds and bear me on my long and weary way.
Move on, slow hours; more swiftly move, and shortly bring the day
When victory is won, and battles o’er no more will I roam,
But I, again, shall be with those I love so well –at home.
