My Country–My Flag

This poem is from Autumn Leaves:

Unfurl my flag and let her fly

Over this place where I now lie.

Let her stars and stripes spank the breeze

Where I now lay and take my ease.

Thoughts of yesterday take wing and fly

Where her beauty adorned the sky.

A million teardrops from a million eyes

Shed over countless graves where brave men lie.

As she waves, I served with pride.

I lived to age while others died.

Others now must heed her call,

Shed their blood and give their all.

From coast to coast, a land so dear,

When I sought God, I found Him here.

When I died, it was not for naught,

Cause our flag stands for all He taught.

So unfurl my flag and let her fly

Over this land where I now lie.

Let her stars and stripes spank the breeze

Where I now lay and take my ease.

God bless America!

    thats why i have read it completely

  15. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog audience have complained about
    my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

    • After lots of comments about how well my IE works and checking it out myself, I found that the problem is on their end – their device or provider. I tell them that and ask them to go directly to my URL (and/or RSS Feed) directly and check out if it is still doing it. Enjoy your day!

    My blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours
    and my users would certainly benefit from a lot
    of the information you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you.

    of getting experience.

  20. Hello friends, its enormous post regarding
    teachingand completely defined, keep it up all the time.

  21. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
    writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Cheers!

    • Thank you for your compliment. In response to your question, I have to say that centering myself is an easy thing because I have practiced it for many years. Eric Butterworth used to say that life is a wheel – one can be at the hub (center) or out on the circumference. If one lives on the circumference, one feels really busy and run over…caught up in the circumstances. However, if one lives in the hub, it is quiet. When I take God’s hand in the morning, I am living in the hub. As to clearing my head, meditation and deep breathing can accomplish that quickly. Happy writing! Enjoy your day! 🙂

  22. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    your information, however good topic. I must spend some time studying more or figuring

    missiօn.
