A Verse I Hadn’t Heard Before

 

Shoutout to Chayah Grace site for the post (read it here), where I came across this verse of The Star Spangled Banner. If I’ve seen it before I don’t remember, but I LOVED it. I wanted to share it with you all, if you haven’t seen it. Hope you enjoy =)

When our land is illumed with liberty’s smile,
If a foe from within strike a blow at her glory,
Down, down with the traitor that dares to defile
The flag of her stars and the page of her story!
By the millions unchained who our birthright have gained,
We will keep her bright blazon forever unstained!
And the star spangled banner in triumph shall wave
While the land of the free is the home of the brave.

~Francis Scott Key
