Here Comes the Fourth

it’s the 1st of July
the morning air is chill
but I’ve a certain feeling
of the heat we’ll get our fill

by the time noon-day sun
rises high above the fill
there’ll be dozens of sunbeams
blooming flowers dressed to kill

grasses will cease their dewiness
as breezes will have swept
all the dustiness from cobwebs
while nocturnals have all slept

when the setting in the west
sun in weariness goes down
every busy little village
will be a sleepy little town

the moon in its slivering
will arise a gentle glow
and the stars all a-twinkle
will put on a glorious show

they will be a random prelude
of the celebration found
in the patriots of this country
as the rockets leave the ground

bombs bursting their excitement
bright sparklers on display
flags raising their contentment
to our Independence Day


©July 1, 2002

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.
