James Ryder Randall
Gentlest and bravest in the battle-brunt—
The Champion of the Truth—
He bore his banner to the very front
Of our immortal youth.
Randall quotes
The despot’s heel is on thy shore,
Maryland!
His torch is at thy temple-door,
Maryland!
Avenge the patriotic gore
That flecked the streets of Baltimore,
And be the battle-queen of yore,
Maryland, my Maryland!
Randall
My Maryland; reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).




Randall James Ryder quotes
Hushed in the alabaster arms of Death
Our young Marcellus sleeps.
