Henry Timrod
Thy skirts indeed the foe may part,
Thy robe be pierced with sword and dart,
They shall not touch thy noble heart,
Timrod quotes
Sleep sweetly in your humble graves,
Sleep, martyrs of a fallen cause;
Though yet no marble column craves
The pilgrim here to pause.
Throw thy bold banner to the breeze!
Front with thy ranks the threatening seas
Like thine own proud armorial trees,

Timrod Henry quotes
And down the dunes a thousand guns lie crouched,
Unseen, beside the flood
Like tigers in some Orient jungle crouched
That wait and watch for blood.
