At Birmingham, Sept. 11, 1777

Should days of brisk be forgot,
Although these days have fled.
Can we neglect the sacred spot,
Where Patriot Heroes bled?

An not those days of "old lang syne,"
We never can forget.
When with our sires to Brandywine,
Come gallant Lafayette.

By Brandywine's enchanting stream,
Our swains in peace abode,
Until the Tyrants' minions came,
To stain its banks with blood, &c.

To meet the Foe-men on the plain
Each Patriot, onward press'd.
And there with Washington, and Wayne
Appeared our honored Guest, &c.

And there he bore him in the van,
Where Washington still led
And to sustain the Rights of Man
The youthful Warrior bled &c.

Then long as our romantic stream,
Shall roll its silver wave,
Its vales shall echo with the name
Of Lafayette, the brave. &c.
Great God, Proniter and Father of Liberty
