Colors of the Nation


Underneath a protective blanket
Of red, white, and blue
The nation stands in humble pride
A nation once again anew
Colors walking in formation
Rifles on the guard
They are our soldiers
Protectiong our backyard
Following the footsteps
Of those who fell on soil stained in red
Who thought nothing of oneself
But of everyone they led
In times of peace
With arms lain down; people still they are
War may pain, and steal and take
But home's in heart, so never far
For a life-changing choice this is
And they accepted, now proclaim
To protect and serve the nation
To uphold in joy its name

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
