The American rebellion by Rudyard Kipling

Twas not while England’s sword unsheathed
Put half a world to flight,
Nor while their new-built cities breathed
Secure behind her might
Not while she poured from Pole to Line
Treasure and ships and men –
These worshippers at Freedom’s shrine,
They did not quit her then!

Not till their foes were driven forth
By England o’er the main –
Not till the Frenchman from the North
Had gone with shattered Spain
Not till the clean-swept oceans showed
No hostile flag unrolled
Did they remember what they owed
To Freedom – and were bold!

  2. Nice blog here! Also your web site loads up very fast! What web host are you using?
    Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my site loaded up as fast as yours
    lol

  3. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is
    excellent but with images and video clips, this website could definitely be
    one of the very best in its field. Very good blog!

  4. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot you
    an e-mail. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it improve over time. Thanks and more thanks!
