My Ten Buckeyes
By Charles L. Sherwood
TWO I will plant at the edge of our camp
  In the land where we go.
These, they are four, I will hold for the ridge
  That our pennon shall know.
I think—yes, I think that these three        5
  I will save, on the chance
That some of our boys may be called
  Far away—out of France.
One is left; that is mine, all alone.
  See, the number I bear        10
And the regiment, cut in the brown;
  And this shall be there
In my pocket. Yes, more, it shall be
  In my heart as I go.
My State! my own State, my home State,        15
  Where the buckeyes grow!
