Belmont Spangled Banner

It’s been 200 years (1814) since Francis Scott key composed this verse
Here it is slightly altered and certainly worse.

Oh, say can you see by Belmont’s bright light?
What so proudly we hailed as the Friends’ banner gleaming?
Reminding us all the time now is right
To renew your Membership and pledge your plight
O’er Ralston we watched it so gallantly streaming
Your dues pays for programs for which our librarians are dreaming.
Your money insures they still will be there
And Belmont will have the best programs anywhere.
