The Star Spangled Banner

By Francis Scott Key O say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming;And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our […]

The Land of Liberty

By Author Unknown I love my country’s pine-clad hills,Her thousand bright and gushing rills,Her sunshine and her storms;Her rough and rugged rocks, that rearTheir hoary heads high in the airIn wild, fantastic forms. I love her rivers, deep and wide,Those mighty streams that seaward glideTo seek the ocean’s breast;Her smiling fields, her pleasant vales,Her shady […]

By H.H. Bennett Hats off!Along the street there comesA blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums,A flash of color beneath the sky:Hats off!The flag is passing by! Blue and crimson and white it shines,Over the steel-tipped, ordered lines.Hats off!The colors before us fly;But more than the flag is passing by. Sea-fights and land-fights, grim and […]

The American Boy

By Author Unknown SON:Father, look up, and see that flag!How gracefully it flies!Those pretty stripes, they seem to beA rainbow in the skies. FATHER:It is your country’s flag, my boy,And proudly drinks the light,O’er ocean’s wave, in foreign climes,A symbol of our might. SON:Father, what fearful noise is that,Now thundering in the clouds?Why do they, […]

Song of the American Eagle

By Author Unknown I build my nest on the mountain’s crest, Where the wild winds rock my eaglets to rest, Where the lightnings flash, and the thunders crash, And the roaring torrents foam and dash; For my spirit free henceforth shall be A type of the sons of Liberty. Aloft I fly from my eyrie high, […]
