The Battlefields of the Future

Though gone the ancient gear of War — though men
Fight not with axe, and mace, and clanging targe —
Still does the ancient war-rage goad them, when
The bugles sound a charge.

To that primaeval passion may we yet
Give ampler range, in fields of vaster marge!
'Gainst War itself, when this war passes, let
Our bugles sound a charge.
