10. Seek out— less often sought than found

A soldier's grave, for thee the best ; Then look around, and choose thy ground,

And take thy rest.(1)

(1) [Taking into consideration every thing connected with these verses, - the last tender aspirations of a loving spirit which they breathe, the self-devotion to a noble cause which they so nobly express, and that consciousness of a near grave glimmering sadly through the whole, there is perhaps no production within the range of mere human composition, round which the circumstances and feelings under which it was written cast so touching an interest. -- MOORE.]
