HERE'S TO VAN TROMP AND DE RUYTER
It's a land of ditch and dyke,
Of lake and dune ;—what then ? Jeer at it as you like,
It breeds the first of men ; Its fields arc low and flat,
Its Avaters dull and slofw; But, lads, what matters that ?
What heroes it can grow ! Two fought us many a day
Whose fame still grows the brighter; Glory to both, I say;
Here's Van Tromp and De Ruyter!
