4 Jul


It’s Independence Day
So that means it’s time
For all us Canucks
To join in and chime

And send a warm greeting
From your neighbors up north
“Happy Birthday, U.S.
On July 4th”

May your star-spangled banner
Always yet wave
May you always be free
And be home to the brave

May you stand tall when times
Would bring you to knees
May God shed His grace
Between your two seas

May your skies all be spacious
And mountains majestic
May your heroes defend
From foreign and domestic

May you set an example
With brotherhood
And show all the world
That you’re crowned with good

As the fireworks launch
And in the sky flare
As the lights flash and flicker
And the firecrackers blare

Get up on your feet
Place your hand on your heart
Sing the Star-Spangled Banner
And let the celebration start!

                                      Happy 4th of July, USA
                                    from Canada

    I feel the need to say thank you and God bless you. Poems such as this warm my heart. Thank you for putting a smile on my face.

    From an American poet to one Canadian.
