Patriotic Poetry


Paul Revere’s Ride


Listen, my children, and you shall hear

Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,

On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;

Hardly a man is now alive

Who remembers that famous day and year.

He said to his friend, "If the British march

By land or sea from the town tonight,

Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch

Of the North Church tower as a signal light,-


One if by land, and two if by sea;

And I on the opposite shore will be,

Ready to ride and give the alarm

Through every Middlesex village and farm,

For the country folk to be up and to arm."

A hurry of hoofs in a village street,

A shape in the moonlight, a bulk in the dark,

And beneath, from the pebbles, in passing, a spark

Struck out by that steed flying fearless and fleet;


That was all! And yet, through the gloom and the light,

The fate of a nation was riding that night....

For, borne on the night-wind of the Past

Through all our history, to the last,

In the hour of darkness and peril and need,

The people will waken and listen and hear

The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed,

And the midnight message of Paul Revere.



Henry Holcomb Bennett


Hats Off!

Along the street there comes

A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums,

A flash of color beneath the sky:

Hats off!

The colors before us fly....

But more than the flag is passing by....

Days of plenty and years of peace;

March of a strong land's swift increase;

Equal justice, right, and law,

Stately honor and reverend awe;

Sign of a nation, great and strong

To ward her people from foreign wrong:

Pride and glory and honor,-all

Live in the colors to stand or fall.

Hats off!

Along the street there comes

A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums;

And loyal hearts are beating high:

Hats off!
