Thirteen stars and stripes

Are stitched together in the
Hands of Betsy Ross

A clear sunny day
And nothing to be heard but
The flap of the flag

In the barbershop
A wooden triangle holds
One man's memory

The old man who fought
And suffered great loss for
The red white and blue

A jet streams above
Everyone stands in honor
Of the stars and stripes

A woman bends down
To plant a flag beside her
Husband's resting place

The fabric waves with
The last breath of the soldiers
Who died for the flag

A little kid dreams
About the Land of The Free
And Home of the Brave


The author's comments:

I am very Patriotic. I love this country and this flag and I always have. I think that respect, honor, and the importance of Patriotism should always be strongly enforced but now more than ever I feel it is necessary. Honor Love and Pride. The flag flies with the last breath of every soldier who died fighting for it.
