Tribute To Horatio Nelson

Thou 
great 
son 
of 
the 
land!

Salute! 
Salute!! 
We 
Salute 
thee!!!
An 
unwavering 
patriot, 
undaunted 
mountain.
British 
admiral 
and 
nava 
hero.
Toulon 
submitted 
to 
thy 
naval 
prowess.
At 
Calvi,thy 
right 
eye 
was 
obliterated,thou 
was 
not 
shaken.
Thy 
prominient 
role 
led 
to 
victories 
off 
Cape 
Saint 
Vincent,the 
nile 
battle; 
great 
conqueror,Napoleon
Advanced 
not 
cos 
of 
thy 
heroic 
strikes.
With 
amputated 
left 
hand,thou 
took 
on 
with 
the 
battle-
cry 
for 
thy 
fatherland.
Created 
Duke,a 
vice-
admiral,more 
services 
thou 
accepted: 
in 
battle 
of 
Copenhagen,thy 
rare 
abilities 
manifested-
in 
gratitude,a 
Viscount 
thou 
became.
  Battle 
of 
Trafalgar 
1805 
French 
and 
Spanish 
fleets 
were 
crushed.
Thy 
personal 
charge 
in 
thy 
flagship"victory" 
defeated 
the 
invasion 
of 
Napoleon.
Oh! 
How 
hath 
the 
mighty 
fallen,forfeiture 
of 
thy 
life,
a 
paid 
price 
for 
victory.
Rest 
great 
son 
of 
Britain, 
for 
in 
hearts 
of 
all,thou 
breatheth!
