The poem is called Father Thames by::
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
O Tiber,Father Tiber.to whom the Romans Pray
A Roman's life,a Roman's Arms are in thy hands today.Come from the Lay of Horatius by Macaulay.The above answer got near to it.
It's a very long poem which begins:
Lars Porsena of Clusium.by the Nine Gods he swore
That the great House of Tarquin would suffer wrong no more.
By the Nine Gods he swore it,and named a trysting day.
And bade his messengers ride forth,East,and West,and South and North to summon his Array
Just think! When I was forced to learn the whole of that poem all those years ago I never thought that it would come in useful all those years
Hope nobody thinks I'm bragging.
Just think children! There is a reason for learning poetry: It might come in useful years later on theInternet.
Anyway , Horatius defends a bridge while his Roman buddies chop it down behind him,and everybody goes home happy and theCredits roll.
