I love Stephan Crane but this poem is one of my favorites! I think its
because it touches on something brutal beneath valor. And it points out the
true hero of the situation-the sacrificed horse.

If I climbed to the top of a wall, I would wave to all my friends too. I
have a really big wall that separates my castle from the lowly peasant scum
that plod my fields. I love Brunei, except for the peasants that throw
plod clumps at my castle. So today i will wave again and smile--secretly
hoping to throw my clumps at them. Peasants rot!

I am normally not the type to post comments on a page like this, so I'll be
brief. I believe that the idioticy disgorged by the other comments is
exactly the kind of ignorance that Stephen Crane highlighted in his most
These postings are an embarrassment to both Steven Crane and the literary

I love this poem! It reflects the passion of Arthurian times, when knights
were great men who fought for honor, their people, and their kingdom. When
Crane incorporates phrases such as "hot and reeking," "steel flickered and
gleamed," and "riot of silver lights," it's like you can really see the
bloody battle going on. Being a romantic, I love the fact that the brave
knight is doing battle in order to save the lady he loves. Isn't it amazing
how poems even as short as this, can paint such a vivid picture in the

Since i'm avoiding death in the Rwanda genocide everyday, this poem gives
me great motivation to press on and LIVE! I will continue to read it
everyday for the next 52 years where I will then live on the moon. Peace.
