Happy Flag Day, everyone.

While I'm not normally comfortable writing free verse, I thought I'd give it a shot for this one!


 

 
 
This flag shows patriotism
The heart of our great nation
The strength of our resilience
Our will to stay the course
Her colors stand for valor
Shown by our country’s finest
The red, the white, the blue
A testament of freedom
 
When struggle seems unending
The flag flies high and free
From sunrise until sunset
She waves a sense of hope
From the village to the city
The valleys to the hills
Her pride is echoed ten fold
In the people who salute
 
This flag of stars and stripes
Lovingly known as Old Glory
Is the pillar of our faith
That our freedom shall remain
For as long as we are living
We will praise her noble cause
Every June 14th is her day
To our flag, we give our thanks

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 6/14/2008
All the right words, but somewhat flat compared to the lyrical qualities of verse. She's a beauty, our flag. Should lead us in war no more.

At least one American remembers Old Glory birthday, and for those with a match ready to burn it, I will remind them that I know a place where to shove up that matches, their Constitutional rights too.
