218 THE FIGHT ABOVE THE CLOUDS.
And still up, still up they leap, Over chasm, rock, and steep ! Hark ! the Hero's eagle-cry, " Such as ye insult God's sky ! To your foul nests down below, Every perjured Rebel foe ! " Cries the awful " Fighting Joe "
In the fight above the clouds !
How they wavered, how they fled, How the trumpet's triumph spread, How the Union's flag unfurled With its Star-Hope o'er the world, Let the nation, all a-glow, Shout to friend and shout to foe, While it laurels " Fighting Joe "
For his fight above the clouds !
O, all ye who for us fell Far above the common dell, Too sublimely there ye sleep For a single eye to weep ; While in answer to each foe, With his grand eyes all a-glow, Points your General, " Fighting Joe " To his fight above the clouds !
