In The Time Of Strife.

May 9, 2010

—Frank L. Stanton.

WE may not know
How red the lilies of the spring shall grow;
What silver flood,
Sea streaming, take the crimson tints of blood.
 
We may not know
If victory shall make the bugles blow;
If still shall wave
The flag above our freedom or our grave.
 
We only know
One heart, one hand, one country, meet the foe;
On land and sea
Her liegemen in the battle of the free.
