Grandpas Birthday is Flag Day


Your birthday falls on flag day, and that makes sense to me
Since you worked proudly for our country, from sea to shining sea
Your work it did make history, the books they will proclaim
So it makes sense to me your birthday would bring you so much fame

I’ll bet when you were born, the flags were flying proud
And patriotic music was playing nice and loud
And it must have given you pride to be born on such a day
So it seemed to be the perfect way, happy birthday to convey

So may this day be brilliant as the red, the white and blue
Fly proudly in the wind for a birthday that is true
And may you have a birthday cake (or something sweet at least)
To go with a humble dinner or a birthday party feast

And may the day be bright and sunny, a cool wind blowing by your place
And may you realize that I miss you, how I wish I could embrace
So have a splendid birthday, you’re always in my heart
I think about you often, even though we are apart.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
