Happy. . . "4th. of July !"

Post by Judith Johnson Kypta » Tue Jun 01, 2010 10:10 am

Happy. . . "4th. of July !"

The fireworks exploding
In the darkness, of night
Gave rise to our adrenalin
As we viewed the awesome sight

It brought to mind, the reasons
This day is . . . So special and grand
Passing through many weary seasons
Our Nation, not wavering . . . Does still stand

Many years ago. . . . In 1776
"Independence Day" got its start
The United States, a various mix
Becoming one, with pride in each heart

Wars have been fought to protect
America, the "Home of the Brave"
Our flag waving, proud and erect
As many sacrificed, with an early grave

The eagle . . . Signifying strength
Denotes a strong bond, within our Nation
Standing together, at any length
Gives rise and cause, for celebration

On this day, with "War" at hand
Prayer’s and hopes, for our men
Bravely fighting, guarding our land
Displaying courage, again and again

So, as we plan for this special day
With picnic's and party’s everywhere
Remember our soldier’s, who are away
Let’s honor them and show we care. . .

As the bright lights, explode above
And stirred excitement, fills the air
Let’s utter a special prayer of love
For our men at war. . . Way over there

And as the lights fizzle in the sky
With smoke, as far as you can see
Remember the reason for this day
It’s so we can live a life . . .That is free

During this great celebration . . .
Some will laugh, some will cry
Yet, we will be filled with elation
This Independence Day . . .

"Happy 4th. Of July!"

In the Site Support forum there is a section called "How To Get Featured-Ecard Nominations" poems are nominated there and Skip "Webmaster" looks at them and if he likes and has the time he'll make it an ecard!!! I put your new one in there today!!!
