A brisker measure play—
Old England's warriors come
In thunder to the fray.
Their bayonets are bright,
In blood to redden soon—
Oh ! cheer them to the tight

Ono shock, and all is o'er—
Crushed foes can form no more.

While plume and pennon float
They charge, and fallen lie
The broken, hollow squares,
While quaver, sb,rill and high,

Thus music valor warms,
And nerves strong hearts and arms
Blow, plaided piper, blow

A wife is . " the grand . wielder of the

Of wit or wisdom show—
