Bathed In War's Perfume

BATHED in war's perfume--delicate flag!
 (Should the days needing armies, needing fleets, come again,)
 O to hear you call the sailors and the soldiers! flag like a
 beautiful woman!
 O to hear the tramp, tramp, of a million answering men! O the ships
 they arm with joy!
 O to see you leap and beckon from the tall masts of ships!
 O to see you peering down on the sailors on the decks!
 Flag like the eyes of women.
