Old Virginia.

Over vale and over mountain,
     Pealing forth in triumph strong,
Comes a lofty swell of music,
     Old Virginia's greeting song.
In the new-born arch of glory,
     Lo! she burns, the central star;
Never shame shall blight its grandeur,
     Never cloud its radiance mar.
“Old Virginia! Old Virginia!”
     Listen, Southrons, to the strain;
“Old Virginia! Old Virginia!”
     Shout the rallying cry again!

--N. O. Picayune, May 5.
