The Star-Spangled Streamer
This is an Anglish wending of the American landsong The Star-Spangled Streamer (The Star-Spangled Banner). Went by Wordwork.
O say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Anglish with English Spelling:
Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the threatening fight,
O’er the forewalls we watched, were so fearlessly streaming?
And the rockers so oft, ringing blasters aloft,
Gave witness through night that our flag held awaft.
Oh, say does that star-spangled streamer yet hold,
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the bold.
Anglish with Anglish Spelling:
Oh, say can geƿ see, by þe daƿn’s early ligt,
Hƿat so prudely ƿe hailed at þe tƿiligt’s last gleaming;
Hƿose broad stripes and brigt stars, þruge þe þreatening figt,
O’er þe foreƿalls ƿe ƿatced, ƿere so fearlessly streaming?
And þe rockers so oft, ringing blasters aloft,
Gafe ƿitness þruge nigt þat ure flag held aƿaft.
Oh, say does þat star-spangeled streamer get hold,
O’er þe land of þe free, and þe home of þe bold.
