Sonnet of Spirit of Old Glory

Behold the eagle spreads its wings Hearken, hear O trumpets call! It urgently soars with the winds What now, what next, to befall

Cowards flinch, they shirk to fight None on a ship or on the shore Brave men ready with all their might Such love of country can’t be more

For in the balance, freedom hangs That, they sacrificed to defend Our hopes and dreams, still in hands When those battles came to an end

And Spirit of Old Glory was revealed By brave men in heaven, on that field

By:  Shylock
