The first poem in this series is the : “Lady of Liberty

lady of liberty and mother of freedom and justice to all,......
who offers her welcome to whomever may call,
be them rich, poor or oppressed,....
she stands watch in the in her robes,so dressed,...
....a gift of friendship from france to the u.s.
dedicated in 1886 and designated a national monument in 1924,.....
a historic landmark to it's very core.
she passed her torch from bedloe's to the renamed liberty island,...
...never frowned,.....
but,kept on smiling.
she raised her torch of eternal light and freedom upward 
toward the heavenly clouds,......
evoking cries and tears of emotion from the visiting crowds.
so, thanks to the great genius of bartholdi and eiffel our symbol 
of freedom still stands by the bay,.....
to signal to all passing through, that liberty,justice and the 
pursuit of happiness and opportunity in america is here to stay,......
in the good ole u.s.a.

 

The second poem inn the series is: “America, My Hometown”

When I travel about this great nation, I never cease
to frown,…. for wherever I seem to land and settle,
I call……
America, my hometown
When I cross the Golden Gate in Frisco Bay, the western
States,the Rockies and great plains, my heart wells up
with pride,….from emotions felt deep inside, and my tears
become so hard to hide.
America, my hometown.
From the golden shores and shining cities of the west and along the sandy shores towns and villages of the GARDEN STATE things still look simply great.
all through colonial new england and up to rugged coastline of the great State of Maine.
our peoples’ quest and dreams of liberty ,and freedom
still remain the same.
for justice,freedom and liberty for all, still ring true today,…..
just as the liberty bell, in our founders’ yesterday.
America, my hometown.
Along the mighty Mississippi from Minneapolis to
New Orleans,….our country’s morality and
patriotic spirit is alive and well, just as all our
other great and noble dreams.
America,my hometown.
Our founders’ vision of liberty and freedom in our country still lives
on today,throughout our nation in cities,both large and small and
along main street U.S.A.
as Lady LIberty stands ever vigilant atop her pedestal on the Bay as our founding fathers dream of
liberty and freedom still live on, to this very day.”
America, my hometown.

The 4th of July

It's time for the "Barbecue" 
And the "Fireworks" galore! 
And the "Beer" and the "Friends" 
And the "Burgers" for sure!
But most important 
And I really must say 
Is that "America" got 
Its "Independence" today!
Yes in "1776" 
The famous politician 
Senator "John Hancock" 
Had signed the petition
That stated that our country 
Was "free" from all others! 
And that we would "only be governed" 
By our "American brothers"!
So while we are celebrating 
This "great day of fun" 
Let us always remember 
What our forefathers had done!

Fourth of July Night

The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky
A white sky bomb fizzed on a black line.
A rocket hissed it's red signature into the west.
Now a shower of Chinese fire alphabets,
A cry of flower pots broken in flames,
A long curve to a purple spray, three violet balloons---
Drips of seaweed tangled in gold, shimmering symbols of mixed numbers,
Tremulous arrangements of cream gold folds of a bride's wedding gown---
A few sky bombs spoke their pieces, then velvet dark.
The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky.

 

Independence Day

Independence Day
I know it's hard for you
I guess that's the way it must be
It's kinda rough on me, too
but time is out now, don't you see?
The day has come now
when I must tell you goodbye
I'm going to manage somehow
either to survive or to die
I'm leaving now
don't ask me why
I've got to get out of here
I'll spread my wings
and try to fly
and if I fail
I'll hit the ground and die
I put no blame on you
but there's no way that I could stay
I guess you already knew
it is my independence day
It is sad to grow up
and see everything disappear
but you can't make the world stop
I've got to get rid of my fear
I'm leaving now
don't ask me why
I've got to get out of here
I'll spread my wings
and try to fly
and if I fail
I'll hit the ground and die
