My American Flag

Flag of the brave
Victory's only passage
With the Azure night
The dash of the fire ablaze
The stripe of pearly snow
Smybol of a victory

America's Victory
Soldiers true and brave
Trudging in the winter snow
Through the dark, hidden passage
The single, small fire ablaze
For I am of the dark night

Yet in my night:
I cry for victory,
I set my enemies ablaze,
For I am of the Brave
Within the hidden passage
The wind, the rain, the snow

Of the Sea, of the snow
Or hiding in the dark, cool night
Within every passage
In glorious victory
The symbol of the strong and brave
My fire within is ablaze

A Torch ablaze
The flash of falling snow
The strong and brave
In the night
Fighting for victory
leaving the passage

Victory has found a passage
The town is ablaze
Today is the victory
In the winter snow
The battle won this night
The shed blood of the brave

With the brave, in the passage
In the night, of the fire
Trudging in the snow, I won the victory

    and 'o'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming' was the red, white, and blue. The sight of this flag at the battle of Fort Sumpter, gave Francis Scott Key his inspiration to write the Star Spangled Banner. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tribute to our national flag.

    Love & hugs,

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:

I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
