    The Returned Volunteer to his Rifle

    by Herman Melville

    Over the hearth--my father's seat--
    Repose, to patriot-memory dear,
    Thou tried companion, whom at last I greet
    By steepy banks of Hudson here.
    How oft I told thee of this scene--
    The Highlands blue--the river's narrowing sheen.
    Little at Gettysburg we thought
    To find such haven; but God kept it green.
    Long rest! with belt, and bayonet, and canteen.
