[Page 31]

No charger prances or [indecipherable] glances
Or Pennants wave before them
They creep and crawl with slow advance
With ooze and sluice all o'er them
The days are done of battles won
By cavaliers bold riding
Today we aim to beat the hun
By artfulness in hiding

But deeds as bold as e'er of old
Are done on fields more bloody
And times recording page may hold
This knights all stained and Muddy
Who Volunteer and Valiant stand
