Rhyme Scheme: A BCBC DEDE FGFG HIHI JKJK

Dulce et decorum estA
-
-
The bugle echoes shrill and sweetB
But not of war it sings to dayC
The road is rhythmic with the feetB
Of men at arms who come to prayC
-
The roses blossom white and redD
On tombs where weary soldiers lieE
Flags wave above the honored deadD
And martial music cleaves the skyE
-
Above their wreath strewn graves we kneelF
They kept the faith and fought the fightG
Through flying lead and crimson steelF
They plunged for Freedom and the RightG
-
May we their grateful children learnH
Their strength who lie beneath this sodI
Who went through fire and death to earnH
At last the accolade of GodI
-
In shining rank on rank arrayedJ
They march the legions of the LordK
He is their Captain unafraidJ
The Prince of Peace Who brought a swordK
