Sword of Edmund

(c) 2014 Drew Nicholson

Rally now round the king
Come and join the sword of Edmund
For the pale, red and white,
we will sally forth this day
Gather now round the flag
Shaded by the shield of Edmund,
For his love, Good Queen Kate
We will hazard, come what may

And it’s off to the Gulf Wars
Where the waters are receding
And it’s off to Estrella
With long days and nights so cold
We’re an army of travelers
We fly on wings of Dragons
We’re the army of Edmund
And we never will grow old!

In the days of distant past
Did we fight for one called Edmund
At the great Pennsic War
Won a victory that year
Now we march on in columns
Marching on for our King Edmund
We will fight at his command,
Then return to loved ones dear
And it’s off…

Tabards shine red and white
In the army of King Edmund
As we follow a giant
arms of oak and legs of steel!
Seize the flank, charge the line
You cannot beat the force of Edmund
When we’ve taken the battle
Enemies before us yield!
And it’s off…

Good Queen Kateryn sees us fight
Inspiration for her Edmund
Giving us grace and care
With our banners straight and tall
Strong and proud does she stand
Mother of the sons of Edmund
When she speaks, our hearts rise
And the army hears her call!
And it’s off…

Rally now round the king
Come and join the sword of Edmund
For the pale, red and white,
we will sally forth this day
Gather now round the flag
Shaded by the shield of Edmund,
For his love, Good Queen Kate
We will hazard, come what may

And it’s off…
