I love it. I enjoyed how you took this years 4th on Sunday and weaved it between God, Royalty and Freedom. It may have been stated that there needs to be a seperation of Church and State but with this little poem you bound them together so neat and tight. Thank you for sharing.
Very good. Well done..
thought provoking. perhaps sending off fireworks this sunday can be a form of prayer. perhaps.
I was totally oblivious of Sunday and the 4th! Thanks for the well written reminder.
A brilliant piece. Very fitting Magpie.Love it. :-)
Composing and composting, yes.But never decomposing. ;)History brought alive againthrough your poem. Bravo!
Yeow, thought provoking Magpie, this.Happy 4th, T! :)
Ooo! That is a good question. I'm LDS too and of course, when certain holiday celebrations were on Sundays I always felt sad I couldn't join in. Really great magpie, I like your focus and how it's about the founding fathers.
this year may it indeed be a time of celebrating the source of true freedom..Wise magpie!
Very nice tribute to God and Country...bkm
This one got me thinking. Interesting Magpie! Well done.
Fortunately, the next town over has a quirky tradition of doing their fireworks display every July 3rd. It's nice to have a choice!
and we celebrate our freedom of religion-good magpie.
i like the title. We usually think of the Independence July 4th symbolizes, but you chose another route. nice!
oh poignant magpie...i belive it the almighty dollar...
Interesting piece. I'm glad to have a choice, for sure.
Very thought provoking. It's a gentle reminder to be thankful for our freedoms, including the freedom to choose where our gratitude is to be directed.
You are right. I worry about where this country is headed. Thanks for a great poem!
