Flag Day, June 14, 2004


The Stars and Stripes wave bravely
Blood spilling from the Red
As men and women of valor
Stand in Freedom's stead

May God turn this nation again to righteousness
That Freedom's cost be not in vain
Blood spilled will sow the land
With deep gratitude; hearts open and plain

May honoring those who've died for others
In search of Freedom's way
Wave briskly in the breeze
On this two thousand four Flag Day

Flag Day, June 14, 2004(C)2004 Quentin Clingerman
