Thy steed is impatient his mistress to bear, Imogen, Home to her lover, on the prairie afar, Imogen, Belov'd as a maiden, adored as a wife, Thou shalt be forever the star of my life.
AN OLD TEXAN'S APPEAL.
i
By Reuben E. Brown.
Come, all ye temper'd hearts of steel—come, quit your flocks
and farms, Your sports, 37our plays, your holidays, and hark! away to arms !
And hark! away to arms !
Your sports, your plays, your holidays,
And hark! away to arms !
For a soldier is a gentleman—his honor is his life— And he that won't fight at his post shall ne'er stay with his wife !
Shall ne'er stay with his Avife!
And he that won't fight at his post,
Shall ne'er stay with his wife!
For love and honor are the same, they are so near alike, They neither can exist alone, but flourish side by side.
Our country calls us to the field—let's not a moment stay; Gird on your arms with cheerfulness, and fearless march away.
