Treasure Island

Old Glory


We're proud of "Old Glory,"
the flag of our nation,
Standing for liberty and freedom,
and celebrations;
Meaning patriotism and parades,
and marching bands;
And people across America,
Holding hands.
Our star-spangled banner
waves proudly on high,
Whether rain, sleet or snow,
or sun's in the sky.
Her colors mean independence,
the red, white and blue;
Democracy and peace,
and tranquility, too.
and as our anthem is sung,
with pride and respect,
There's a lady in history
we cannot forget.
We thank Betsy Ross
for the gift we've treasured,
That throughout all the years
Will have worth unmeasured!

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
