None can narrate that strife in the pines,A seal is on it – Sabaean lore!Obscure as the wood, the entangled rhymeBut hints at the maze of war –Vivid glimpses or livid through peopled gloom, And fires which creep and char –A riddle of death, of which the slainSole solvers are. –Herman Melville, “The Armies of the Wilderness" Image: Skulls remaining on the field and trees destroyed at the Battle of the Wilderness, 1864, Virginia.
