What Place is Besieged?

What Place is Besieged?

WHAT place is besieged, and vainly tries to raise the siege?
Lo! I send to that place a commander, swift, brave, immortal;
And with him horse and foot-and parks of artillery,
And artillery-men, the deadliest that ever fired gun.



Poem What Place is Besieged? - Walt Whitman
