Review of Written in the Beginning of the Year 1746 by William Collins

Written in the Beginning of the Year 1746 by William Collins (b. 1721) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 3, 2013.  It is a stirring, rhyming poem in honor of the brave souls who died in defense of freedom.  The many uses of personification enhance the imagery of the poem and make what could have otherwise been a dirge into an uplifting tribute.
