What Does Our Flag Mean To You?

The Flag
by Rachel Hoyt

The pattern - how it flies,
With every gust it tries,
To appeal to the skies
To billow its glory.

A symbol - red, white, blue -
That flutters inside you
To unify minds who
Write liberty's story.

  1. ah, yes. red for the blood shed fighting for liberty, white for the light in the future, blue for the expanse of sky above the free country and of course the stars for the states in the united states of america. well, it's a good idea but sometimes good ideas take a while to come to fruition. hope we get there soon before we ruin it.

    1. All good things take a LONG time to mature. :)

  2. Great poem for the 4th! Yes, it still flutters inside me. :-) Happy belated 4th!

    1. Thanks! Happy belated 4th to you!! :)
