[31] The dead their august shades present
By Frankfort's battle monument--
Not now their souls can be at rest,
Though in the Islands of the Blest--
“Remember us,” their voices cry,
“When comes the hour of conflict nigh,
Draw on the traitor ranks abhorred
The sword of Gideon and the Lord!
And with or on thy shining shield,
Return, Kentucky, from the field!”
