They stood up one at a time
Came forward to lay claim
To the words they assembled
Without thought for future fame

They shared the decision
To reject a venerable decree
Make a society from their words
Carved into liberty’s tree

Did they imagine at the time
Their names would forever be
Known as the fathers founding
A land that struggled free

I have often wondered too, if they KNEW--

You seem to be doing some time travel here...so sorry I missed the meeting!

A capture of a moment--that is a bit like holding the acorn that becomes the mighty oak!

Poet deVine~Enjoyed. I really believe they had a vision of freedom. Sadly we still are fighting for that which they wrote about...Paul

A lovely tribute.  It is indeed inspiring to consider the selflessness of these men, expecting no fame, wanting only what is best for future generations.

Well expressed, Sharon.
