Allies of Britain





Allies of Britain swift to uphold
Friendship treasured above mere gold.
Proving in successive wars the strength
Of brotherly love untold.

Allies of Britain in The New World
Flaunted wher'ere the Flag's unfurled.
Glories of Iroquois Ally true.
When venomous hatred hurled

Britons to battle for ideals strong
Ready to grapple grievous wrongs.
Sacred of earliest histories
Where glorious brave deed throng.

Allies of Britain, ere the borning,
Of the Two-Nations adorning,
The North American Continent
Like twin-born sons of morning.

Legions of valor when bloody rain
Consecrated Abraham's Plain.
Wresting from France, the New Dominion,
By successful Allied gain.

Loyal, when later her sons rebelled, --
Scorning disloyalty, proving the weld
Of the Red and the White brotherhood
U.E. Loyalists upheld.

Loyal to Mother Britannia,
Although exiled to Canada.
Predestined to pathways glorious
Led by Thayendanegea.

Allies of Britain in eighteen-twelve,
Truly a treasure  for any shelve.
Tecumseh's record appeals to all
Who reverentially delve

Into proud of heroic space
As in the World War, where a Mohawk "Ace",
Lieutenant Cammeron D.J. Brant -- won
In casualties, --- first place

Allies of Britain swift to uphold
Friendship treasured above mere gold.
Proving in successive wars the strength
Of brotherly love untold.

Loyal Six Nations of Canada,
First-born sons of America,
Red brethren of proud Judean right.--
Led by Thayendanegea.

1930 -- By -- Teressa Brant
