What's your favorite poem?

"Bivouac of the Dead" by Theodore O'Hara or "Flanders Field" by John McCrea. Both have a military theme. Bivouac was written during the Mexican War but used by many soldiers during the Civil War. Flanders was written during World War I about poppies growing in the fields between crosses and graves at a cemetery. Both tell a strong story.
