1905Who now shall sneer?
Who dare to we traceagain say
?Our Unes to a raceplebeian
Roimdhead and Cavalier!
Dumb are those erewhile in battle loudnames, j
as the shadow aDream-footed, of cloud,
across the ear;They flit
is best blood that hath most iron in *tThat
To resolve without stintwith,edge pouring
what makes manhood dear.For
Tell us not of Plantagenets,
whose thin bloods crawlandHapsburgs, Guelphs,
some victor in a border brawl!Down from
How their outwornpoor coronets,
with one that civic wreathMatched leaf plainof
Our brave honor's blazon shallfor bequeath,
a Nationwhose desert rescued setsThrough
heel on and the hearsHer treason, trumpet
's sullen earsShout victory, tingling Europe
vain resentments and more vain SWith regrets
