The union of lakes, the union of lands,The union of States none can sever,The union of hearts, the union of hands,And the flag of our Union forever!
The Flag of our Union, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
Woodman, spare that tree!Touch not a single bough!In youth it sheltered me,And I 'll protect it now.George Pope Morris
A song for our banner! The watchword recall which gave the Republic her station: "United we stand, divided we fall!" It made and preserves us a nation!George Pope Morris
Near the lake where drooped the willow,Long time ago!George Pope Morris
In teaching me the way to liveIt taught me how to die.George Pope Morris
