Quotations

  • ''We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.''
    William Gilmore Simms (1806-1872), U.S. novelist. The Swamp Fox (l. 1-8). . . Family Book of Best Loved Poems, The. David L. George, ed. (1952) Doubleday & Company.

  • ''The Tory camp is now in sight,
    And there he cowers within his den;
    He hears our shouts, he dreads the fight,
    He fears, and flies from Marion's men.''

Blessings On Children

Blessings on the blessing children, sweetest gifts of Heaven to earth,
Filling all the heart with gladness, filling all the house with mirth;
Bringing with them native sweetness, pictures of the primal bloom,
Which the bliss for ever gladdens, of the region whence they come;
Bringing with them joyous impulse of a state with outen care,
And a buoyant faith in being, which makes all in nature fair;
Not a doubt to dim the distance, not a grief to vex thee, nigh,
And a hope that in existence
