With The Colors

Spirit of Washington Look down

Upon this ancient German town

And see the flag you loved fly free

Upon the spire of Monarchy.

Where Porta Nigra’s olden gate

Still stands in sombre ruinous state,

The officers of the U.S.A.

Go briskly to and fro each day.

And soldiers, thousands of them, walk

These ancient streets and try to talk

The German language with a “Oui”,

—Exponents of Democracy.

So far from home. Great Spirit guide

Our every step, that we with pride

May go back soon with laurels won,

And hear our loved ones say “Well Done”.

-U.S. Army
