Here's wishing you a really great day today.
Happy Fourth of July
Flags unfurl for fireworks and family fun
On this special day for our nation--
UNITED STATES with parades and picnics
Respect, the ramparts red glare,
The bombs bursting in air...
Have a happy holiday.
“Oh,” we all say as
Fireworks explode to symbolize
Justice in our land
United we stand,
Like Lady Liberty
You and me, together, UNITED STATES.
Bring on the watermelon,
Let's see who can
spit seeds the farthest.
Let's run in the water
sprinklers to cool ourselves
off from this heat.
Can you write your own holiday poem? Start by creating a word bank to use in your poem. Make a list of all the things the Fourth of July means to you. Ask your family and friends to help add to your word bank. What form of poem will you write? Free verse? Rhyming couplets? An acrostic like I did? A list poem? Perhaps a haiku? What ever you do, have fun on this special day. Enjoy your freedom.
