Red, White, And Blue - Poem by Cicely Fox Smith

Sons of the seagirt land,
Strong round the banner stand
Steadfast and true!
Honour and loyalty
Ever our 'watchword be!
Flutter o'er land and sea
Red, white, and blue!

Bed for the life-blood shed,
When for their country bled
Brave men and true!
White for our stainless name,
Blue for our faith and fame,
Guarding from every shame
Red, white, and blue!

Britons, while earth endure,
Keep we our 'scutcheons pure
Centuries through
Lang may Britannia's fame
Inviolate remain -
Ever without a stain
Red, white, and blue!
