Who dare again to say we trace Our lines to a plebeian race? Roundhead and Cavalier! Dumb are those names, erewhile in battle loud; Dream-footed, as the shadow a cloud,of They flit across the ear That is best blood that hath most iron in 't To edge resolve with, pouring without stint For what makes manhood dear. Tell us not Plantagenets,of Hapsburgs, and Guelphs, whose thin bloods crawl Down somefrom victor in a border brawl! Haw poor their outworn coronets, Matched with one leaf that plain civic wreathof Our brave honor'sfor blazon shall bequeath, Through whose desert a rescued Nation sets Her heel on treason, and the trumpet hears Shout victory, tingling Europe's sullen ears With vain resentments and more vain regrets! JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL. PREFATORY NOTE An attempt inhas been made the present collection to gather together the patriotic poems of America, those which depict feelings as well as those which describe actions, since these latter are as indicative of the temper of the time.
