Song of the Red Cross: HELP

Poem by Eden Phillpotts
Song of the Red Cross

O GRACIOUS ones, we bless your name
Upon our bended knee;
The voice of love with tongue of flame
Records your charity.

Your hearts, your lives right willingly ye gave,
That sacred ruth might shine;
Ye fell, bright spirits, brave amongst the brave,
Compassionate, divine.

Example from your lustrous deeds
The conqueror shall take,
Sowing sublime and fruitful seeds
Of aidos in this ache.

And when our griefs have passed on gloomy wing,
When friend and foe are sped,
Sons of a morning to be born shall sing
The radiant Cross of Red;

Sons of a morning to be born shall sing
The radiant Cross of Red.



I need help to analyze in detail what is the crux of the poem and what are some of the important things to note in the poem.
Thanks,
Sienna
PS There is something wrong with the alignment of the poem so comments on structure of the poem is not necessary..
