Poet’s Corner

by Jewell Turner

Hooray for the Red, White, and Blue

And for loyal hearts that are brave and true

Down through history in my minds eye I see

A flag that stands for the brave and the free

Lord may it forever be

It was a grand sight to behold

Any many stories and songs are told

Of deeds daring and bold

Our proud banner to uphold

And waving free in every town

The stars and stripes may be found

May future children see it fly

And stand in awe as it passes by

And understand the reason why

That tears are seen in many an eye
