"A song for our banner?"--The watchword recall
  Which gave the Republic her station;
    "United we stand--divided we fall!"
      It made and preserves us a nation!
      - George Pope Morris, The Flag of Our Union

The flag of our Union forever!
      - George Pope Morris, The Flag of Our Union

Your flag and my flag,
  And how it flies today
    In your land and my land
      And half a world away!
        Rose-red and blood-red
          The stripes forever gleam;
            Snow-white and soul-white--
              The good forefathers' dream;
                Sky-blue and true-blue, with stars to gleam aright--
                  The gloried guidon of the day, a shelter through the night.
      - Wilbur D. Nesbit, Your Flag and My Flag

This is the song of the wind as it came,
  Tossing the flags of the Nations to flame.
      - Alfred Noyes, Avenue of the Allies

Yes, we'll rally round the flag, boys, we'll rally once again,
  Shouting the battle-cry of Freedom,
    We will rally from the hill-side, we'll gather from the plain,
      Shouting the battle-cry of Freedom.
      - George Frederick Root,
        Battle-Cry of Freedom

This token serveth for a flag of truce
  Betwixt ourselves and all our followers.
      - William Shakespeare

See here, my friends and loving countrymen:
  This token serveth for a flag of truce
    Betwixt ourselves and all our followers.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Gloucester at III, i)

I called thee then vain flourish of my fortune;
  I called thee then poor shadow, painted queen,
    The presentation of but what I was,
      The flattering index of a direful pageant,
        One heaved a-high to be hurled down below,
          A mother only mocked with two fair babes,
            A dream of what thou wast, a garish flag,
              To be the aim of every dangerous shot;
                A sign of dignity, a breath, a bubble,
                  A queen in just, only to fill the scene.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Queen Margaret at IV, iv)

She's up there--Old Glory--where lightnings are sped,
  She dazzles the nations with ripples of red,
    And she'll wave for us living, or droop o'er us dead--
      The flag of our country forever.
      - Frank Lebby Stanton, Our Flag Forever

Banner of England, not for a season,
  O Banner of Britain, hast thou
    Floated in conquering battle or flapt to the battle-cry!
      Never with mightier glory than when we had rear'd thee on high,
        Flying at top of the roofs in the ghastly siege of Lucknow--
          Shot thro' the staff or the halyard, but we ever we raised thee anew,
            And ever upon the topmost roof our banner of England blew.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        The Defence of Lucknow

To Anacreon in heaven, where he sat in full glee,
  A few Son of Harmony sent a petition,
    That he there inspirer and patron would be.
      - Ralph Tomlinson, To Anacreon in Heaven

Might his last glance behold the glorious ensign of the Republic still full high advanced, its arms and trophies streaming in all their original lustre.
      - Daniel Webster,
        Peroration of the replay to Hayne

"Shoot, if you must, this old gray head,
  But spare your country's flag," she said.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Barbara Frietchie

A star for every State, and a State for every star.
      - Robert Charles Winthrop,
        in an address on Boston Common
