George Herbert Clarke, ed. (1873–1953).  A Treasury of War Poetry.  1917.
 
27. Belgium
 
By Edith Wharton
 
 
La Belgique ne regrette rien
 
 
NOT with her ruined silver spires,
Not with her cities shamed and rent,
Perish the imperishable fires
That shape the homestead from the tent.
 
Wherever men are staunch and free,        5
There shall she keep her fearless state,
And homeless, to great nations be
The home of all that makes them great.
