THE NEW ALLY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Their great gray ships go plunging forth
Last Line: Their pact with freedom while we slept!
Subject(s): World War I - United States


THEIR great gray ships go plunging forth;
The waves, wind-wakened from the north,
Swarm up their bows and fall away,
And wash the air with golden spray.

Far off is flung their battle-line;
Far off their great guns flame and shine;
And we are one with them—we rise
With dawning thunder in our eyes
To join the embattled hosts that kept
Their pact with freedom while we slept!
