    Youth, large, lusty, loving—Youth, full of grace, force, fascination!
Do you know that Old Age may come after you, with equal grace, force, fascination?
          Youth, Day, Old Age and Night.
7401
    Roaming in thought over the Universe, I saw the little that is Good steadily hastening towards immortality,
And the vast that is evil I saw hastening to merge itself and become lost and dead.
          Roaming in Thought. 1 
7402
    Thunder on! Stride on! Democracy. Strike with vengeful stroke!
          Drum-Taps. Rise O Days from your fathomless Deep. 3.

              O Banner!
Not houses of peace are you, nor any nor all of their prosperity; if need be you shall have every one of those houses to destroy them;
You thought not to destroy those valuable houses, standing fast, full of comfort, built with money;
May they stand fast then? Not an hour, unless you, above them and all, stand fast.
          Drum-Taps. Song of the Banner at Daybreak.
7404
    Over all the sky—the sky! far, far out of reach, studded with the eternal stars.
          Drum-Taps. Bivouac on a Mountain-side.
7405
    Give me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-dazzling!
          Drum-Taps. Give me the splendid Silent Sun.
7406
        Lo! the moon ascending!
Up from the East, the silvery round moon;
Beautiful over the house-tops, ghastly, phantom moon;
  Immense and silent moon.
          Drum-Taps. Dirge for Two Veterans.
