The American Flag

Happy Independence Day to you and yours!


When freedom, from her mountain height
     Unfurled her standard to the air,
She tore the azure robe of night,
     And set the stars of glory there!
She mingled with its gorgeous dyes
     The milky baldric of the skies,
And striped its pure, celestial white
    With streakings of the morning light.

The American Flag
 by Joseph Rodman Drake



I'm thankful to have been born an American! 
 God Bless the USA!

    Happy 4th to you,
