This is a poem written concerning the Edinburgh Reform Jubilee Procession.  We are told that it was a proud day when 'Scotland's sons in long array, / Walked forth in freedom and in might'.  The poem comments on the numerous banners that flew that day - many of which contained poems, which The Scotsman reports on in their 11-08-1832 issue.
