    The poetic device used in the last stanza, when he dropped his medals down into her hand, is irony. His mother’s desire was the medals which her son will attain after he comes back from the war. She never feared about her son as whether he will come back alive or not but hoped for the medals. So it is indeed ironical when John Brown, who came back from the war barely alive, made sure to put the medal, which his mother desired, into her hand.
