Our Own Red White And Blue - Poem by Frances Landis

Thirteen stripes of red and white
Stars set in azure blue
Mean more to me than fifty states
They stand for love and freedom too

As I gaze upon its beauty
Waving gently in the blue
I cross my heart and make a vow
To my country I'll be true

There majestically upon its pole
For all who pass to see
Is a symbol of our forefathers
Who died to make us free

Many things in this world have changed
And we're glad sometimes they do
But we'll never change what our flag
stands for
