6. the Stars and Stripes for ever. by Emily M. Washington. Since first our banner bright unfurled Its crimson folds of glory, No flag e'er floated yet that could Keep peace with ours in story! Sink, sink the hand of treason, then, Its greatness now would smother! No earthly power that flag shall mar, King, prince, or any other. The Stars and Stripes for ever! ‘Long many a crimson field of fame-- O'er decks grown red for honor-- Round Bunker's Hill and Brandywine, Danced that old veteran banner! For rebels' gain, and freedom's bane, All wrong, but subtle reason, In spite of Right shall Wrong, grown bold, Lift up that rag of treason-- The bannered Cross! Oh! never! When darkness draped our country's sky, And none could comfort borrow From scourging foes and scowling woes, That flag sprang forth in sorrow! Wrong gave the Stripes — hope wrought the Stars-- Ah! those old grandsires able, From pain to hallowed peace, at last, They passed — the good, the noble, The murdered brave — to
en tyrants taught, And Freedom's beauteous limbs enthrall, Or bind the lightning of her thought? Shall her unwilling hands be made To forge the insignia of her shame; Her tongue to speak, her pen to write, A flamling falsehood on her fame? Say, ye who stood on Trenton's height, Shall thus Columbia's freemen write? No! never while one spars remains Unquenched of freedom's altar-fires, Which still may shoot aloft in flame, Fanned by the memory of our sires; No! not till every patriot's blood Is poured upon the sword to rust, And Liberty, without her shield, Trails her bright garments in the dust; Not till the mother fails to teach Her offspring, with a zeal divine, The foeman's rights, baptized in blood, At Bunker Hill and Brandywine; And not till this, and not till then, Shall dawn that black and hateful hour That dooms the patriot's tongue and pen To bide the weight of bigot power; And then to shame our father's graves, We shall deserve the brand of slaves. Owensboro, Ky., 1864.
