It is the sound of laughter

That fills the summer air

As kids go out to shoot                              

Found on Country and Farm Photography on 7-4-17. Taken by Angie Lee Colona. Sadie Mae ready for the 4th of July.

Fire-crackers every where.


It is the smell of hot dogs

Sizzling on a charcoal grill,

And lots of American flags 

Draped over the window sills.


It is the crack of a bat

After we sing a song

Honoring our Country

And feeling we all belong.


It is a piece of watermelon

Being held by a child,

As she spits out the seeds

And shoves them in a pile.


It is the pride that we feel

In celebrating America’s birth, 

And the many ways we find

To honor all she’s worth.
