This poem appeared in the Hartford Courant this morning, and it is well worth
sharing it with all of you. It was written back in 1971 inspired by sight of
the American Flag on the moon.
Old Glory on the Moon
by Mary V. DeMaio
"Remember me? I'm Old Glory,
Don't have to tell my story.
It's written all over me.
I am your family tree.
"I never dreamed that one day soon,
I would be planted on the Moon.
So on my 14th day of June
Let's all celebrate with a boom.
"If each and every one of you
Have love for my red, white and blue,
Then proudly show my colors true
And let me hear you say 'I do.'
"Way up on high I have no show
And all alone I cannot grow
But 50 stars will always glow
In hopes of spreading peace below."
Hope your holiday is safe and happy.
and a good ol' Bear, too!
