"cannon to right of them," "to left of them," "in front of them," are not rhymes at all.

We suppose that as Nolan was only a subaltern, it was held, on second thought, that his name was not worthy of being preserved. Had he been a general, it might have been different, perhaps. Even the metre of Tennyson's lyric is not original. An English essay writer, in a volume just published in London by Stahan & Co., and entitled "Table Talk," quotes a verse from a ballad, "The Battalion of Agincourt," by Michael Drayton, and published in 1627, which shows from what source the form of "The Charge of the Light Brigade" was derived. It runs thus: "They now to fight are gone, Armor on armor shone, Drum now to drum did groan, To hear was wonder-- That with the cries they make, The very earth did shake, Trumpet to trumpet spake-- Thunder to thunder!"
