Author Unknown

Some birthdays come in winter,

Some birthdays come in spring.

On birthdays there are games to play

And lots of songs to sing.

My favorite birthday is in July,

And it doesn’t belong to me!

It’s the birthday that lights up the sky

For all the world to see!

Rockets glare, trumpets blare,

And bands begin to play.

Happy Birthday America,

It’s Independence Day!

Our Flag!

Author Unknown

I love to see the starry flag

That floats above my head.

I love to see its waving folds

With stripes of white and red.

“Be brave,” said the red stripes.

“Be pure,” said the white.

“Be true,” say the bright stars.

“And stand for the right.”

Down at the Flagpole!

(Tune: Down at the Station)

Down at the flagpole,

Early in the morning,

We will raise our flag,

The red, white, and blue.

We stand at attention,

It’s something that we do.

We salute the colors,

The red, white, and blue.

Fireworks in the Sky!

(Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

Boom, crack, whistle, pop!

Fireworks in the sky.

See them lighting up the night,

On the Fourth of July.

Red, blue, gold, and green,

With fireworks we say,

“Happy Birthday, America,

It’s Independence Day!”

Colors of Our Flag!

Red, white, and blue

Red, white, and blue

Colors of our flag

Colors of our flag

We sing about our country’s flag

Red, white, and blue.

Day At The Funny-Farm – Poem by Smoky Hoss!

Ducks flyin’


over the pond,

Granny’s been drinkin’

and playin’

with her magic wand –

Horses in the


kickin’ up snow,

lookin’ at


from the 4th of July show –

Hound dawgs runnin’

at the end

of his leash,

watchin’ rabbits

just a shakin’ and bakin’

down on the beach –

Moons in the


way up high,

shines down low

agin’ in old oak barrels

nice and slow –

Goin’ ta town

in the old

Model A,

runnin’ flat out

30 miles per hour

all the way –

Hittin’ the pub

for a drink

or two,

the old bulls are milked

and the work

is all through –

Look out boys

cause where it stops

nobody knows,

down here

on the funny-farm

anything goes.

Death, Life’s Mystery – Poem by Smoky Hoss!

Surprisingly, I find myself

These days ever more content

To just simply sit,

Watch an old movie

With a good sweet story to tell,

Or lazily listen

To some finely felt jazz

That soothes my soul so well,

Or watch the sun break

The holy horizon

On a clear cool

Fall mourn’,

With half frozen dew

On the last grass before winter’s first storm;

– It all shines and sparkles

With a grand majesty of deep mystery; of

Life, and being,

Of knowing and feeling what you are hearing and seeing.

So much beautiful warmth,

In such foreshadowed cold.

The perfect combination of modest and bold…

At the recognition of these

Tears enter my eye’s…….

And I cannot say for certain


Other than the realization

Of so very much beauty -and life-

Even in the things bound so soon to


My heart holds on,

Refusing to say ‘Good-bye’;

And I want nothing alive

To ever, ever again

Come to an end,

– Or to die.

Deft Desire!

A woman’s touch

is ah, what man most does desire;

worth the risk, to be slapped or kissed,

no in between’s, for the female heart is,

fully ice, or fully fire.

Desert Rats!

Desert rats

Take cover in the heat,

They know what to toss

And what to keep –

They skillfully hide under big sombreros

And down lots of water,

They’ve learned well when to sit, and when to quit,

When to stay, and when to scatter –

The desert calls them

Right to the edge of existence;

But, too wise are they, any foolish games to play,

For in the desert they have found the art of survival is patience –

Listen close my friends for the divine desert to call you…

By all means, come and see,

But, with eyes wide open tread slowly

Following the tracks of wise old desert rats…

Just like me.

Americans in strength!

Americans in strength unite

This union born in freedom’s light

The United States, how sure we are

We’ll pull together, near and far

The world can see what we’re made

Each state is of the highest grade

Determination, filled with pride

Our people’s will won’t be denied

Our founding fathers set to stay

The road we’ve traveled to this day

A quest for right cannot be wrong

With help from God, we will stay strong

Support our troops ranks number one

For the job they do is never done

When forced they put it on the line

True patriots, when called they shine

Let’s raise Old Glory with a cheer

And thank all soldiers, past and here

The Land of Liberty!

I love my country’s pine-clad hills,

Her thousand bright and gushing rills,

Her sunshine and her storms;

Her rough and rugged rocks, that rear

Their hoary heads high in the air

In wild, fantastic forms.

I love her rivers, deep and wide,

Those mighty streams that seaward glide

To seek the ocean’s breast;

Her smiling fields, her pleasant vales,

Her shady dales, her flowery dales,

The haunts of peaceful rest.

I love her forests, dark and lone,

For there the wild bird’s merry tone

I hear from morn till night;

And there are lovelier flowers, I ween,

Than e’er in Eastern lands were seen,

In varied colors bright.

Her forests and her valleys fair,

Her flowers that scent the morning air–

All have their charms for me;

But more I love my country’s name,

Those words that echo deathless fame,

“The Land of Liberty.”
