Rating: 3.0

WHEN the warrior returns, from the battle afar,
To the home and the country he nobly defended,
O! warm be the welcome to gladden his ear,
And loud be the joy that his perils are ended:
In the full tide of song let his fame roll along,
To the feast-flowing board let us gratefully throng,
Where, mixed with the olive, the laurel shall wave,
And form a bright wreath for the brows of the brave.

Who claim the reward of your hearts' warm emotion,

I can't read these Francis Scott Key poems without trying to fit it to the U.S. National Anthem tune. Lol
