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!
