I have a rendez-vous with death

I memorized this poem as a small child (I'm american) and was so moved to
read it again that tears were pouring. In an way, Alan Seeger was my first
poetic love.

I first heard this poem when it was used for the astounding Gears of War 2
trailer "Rendezvous." Minding that only the beginning parts of select
stanzas were used in the trailer, it fit perfectly with the apocalyptic
world of Gears of War, and the constant certainty of death. Alan Seeger
most definitely embraced death. And I believe that quality makes him more
noble than most people can ever be.

My only brother, Ken, commited suicide in November many years ago. He had
a copy of this poem in his wallet. It is hauntingly beautiful, yet sad.

Yo Tim stop thinking your the show- Seeger most definetly embraced death,
in 1915 he wrote a letter from the front saying, "If it must be, let it
come in the heat of action. Why flinch? It is by far the noblest form in
which death can come. It is in a sense almost a privilege. . . ." found
that off english.emory.edu if you wanna check it out
