‘Magna Carta’ by Percy MacKaye

‘Magna Carta’2008-09-15 10.41.37

by Percy MacKaye

“Magna Carta! Magna Carta!
English brothers, we have borne it
On our banners down the ages, —
Who shall scorn it?
Bitter fought-for, blood-emblazoned
With the fadeless gules of freedom,
Interbound with precious pages —
English brothers, we who shrine it…”

You can read the complete poem here.
