"He said to his friend, "If the British march By land or sea from the town to-night,/ Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch Of the North-Church-tower, /as a signal-light,-- One if by land, and two if by sea;/ And I on the opposite shore will be, Ready to ride and spread the alarm/ Through every Middlesex village and farm, For the country-folk to be up and /to arm." (Longfellow 629)
