Happy 4th Of July- A Poem For You

Happy Fourth Of July!
She's a grand old flag,
She has passed the test.
She has stood strong,
Guarded by the best.

The best of the best,
Have served her well,
From the mountain of Victory
To the pit of Hell.

Our soliders have banded
One and all.
To fight for our freedon,
When they heard the call.

 I thank you soliders,
Each and every one,
From father and brother,
To daughter and son.

You have given yourselves,
That we might be free.
A big "thank you so much"
from my family and me. 

God bless you all,
Happy Fourth Of July.
Remember your freedom
Caused someone to die.

Raise up the families
Of those that are gone,
And pray for their safety
Until they all come home.
Blessings-
©Nana Diana 7/12

This is SweetCheeks last year
watching her Daddy set off
some fireworks-
Oh~To always keep that awe
and wonderment-

  8. I'm so proud to be an American, and you bring tears to my eyes with your beautiful poems.
    No fireworks here this year, except over on the river, where there will be a big fireworks display.
    Happy 4th to you, and yours.

  14. Happy 4th Diana. Sweet Cheeks looks kind of stunned, but since she's a year older now, she can probably handle the firepower better.

  30. What a touching poem. I think you must pack up right away and go to a writer's retreat in Ireland with me!

    SweetCheeks looks a little more terrified than in wonder about those fireworks but hey, both are appropriate on the 4th. My dogs sat shaking under the table and looked just like that!

    Your photos are so beautiful and really capture the meaning of Independence Day. Thanks for that, I needed some nostalgia and it was beautiful.
