270           THE STRIPES AND STARS.
TPIE STRIPES AND STARS.
BY EDNA DEAN PROCTOR.
Air "The Star-Spangled Banner"
OH Star-Spangled Banner! the flag of our
pride ! Though trampled by traitors and basely defied, Fling out to the glad winds, your red, white and
blue, For the heart of the Northland is beating for you ! And her strong arm is nerving to strike with a will, Till the foe and his boastings are humbled and still! Here's welcome to wounding, and combat, and
scars, And the glory of death for the Stripes and the
Stars!
From prairie, O ploughman ! speed boldly away There 's seed to be sown in God's furrows to-day Row landward, lone fisher! stout woodman, come
home ! Let smith leave his anvil and weaver his loom, And hamlet and city ring loud with the cry, 14 For God and our Country we '11 fight till we die ! Here 's welcome to wounding, and combat, and scars, And the glory of death for the Stripes and the
Stars! "
