Children Of The Flag - Poem by Marilyn Lott

I wish you could have seen the children
Celebrate our flag in the parade
They were dressed in brilliant costumes
That their mothers no doubt have made

Our American flags decorated the streets
And decorated the children too
Folks lined up to watch the parade
And the children entertained me and you

Wagons looked like miniature floats
They worked so very hard to show
How important our flag has always been
Yes, they wanted everyone to know

Little tricycle-riding kids so cute
Wearing Uncle Sam hats on their heads
You'll never see anything quite so adorable
They'll be so tired that they'll fall in their beds

It was truly an exciting day for everyone
And believe me the judges had a hard task
Because everyone was a winner
Too bad the excitement couldn't last!
