170             SOJVGS OF WAR ANB PEACE
The blue has mingled with the skies, And all are boys in gray.
The true and brave of all the hosts,
That wore the blue and gray, And fought for what they deemed the right,
Are done with war today. The rosy, round-limbed Queen of Peace
Has broken war's array; His hosts, disarmed, are silver-haired,
And all are boys in gray.
There are tears,
and cheers,
dear comrades,
For the flag that's called " Old Glory,"
When its folds, unfurled, are waving,
And the pages of its story
We are turning once again.
They are light,
and bright,
the colors, That shine upon that banner, From northern lakes to southern gulf, From ocean to savanna,
And across the western plain.
