A Day! Help! Help! Another Day!
Your prayers, oh Passer by!
From such a common ball as this
Might date a Victory!
From marshallings as simple
The flags of nations swang.
Steady—my soul: What issues
Upon thine arrow hang!

flag on its own is limp downcast, mere fabric give him wind and in a second it springs to life to uphold its career in honour and pride it swings us into a sea of patriotism love for one's nation could man then be an island?
