120              THROUGH BALTIMORE.
But on Olympian heights shall dwell the devoted forever; There shall assemble the good, there the wise, valiant, and free.
Oh ! then how great for our country to die in the front rank to perish, Firm, with our breast to the foe, Victory's shout in our ear ! Long they our statues shall crown, in songs our memory cherish; We shall look forth from our heaven, pleased the sweet music to hear.
THROUGH BALTIMORE.
THE VOICE OP THE PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS. BY BAYARD TAYLOR.
I.
'TWAS Friday morn, the train drew near
The city and the shore : Far through the sunshine, soft and clear, We saw the dear old flag appear, And in our hearts arose a cheer
For Baltimore.
