A powerful piece portraying the horrors and savagery or war, and the bravery of those that have fought in them. This text by Henry Van Dyke is haunting and beautiful, and quite moving. Accessible to your high school group, it works well as a concert or a festival piece, or for a Memorial Day tribute.
