ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Within the glorious majesty, upon a hill so high,
My eyes survey the great expanse, I raise them to sky,
God’s great creation is right there for me to lay my head,
The stars will light the sky tonight, the earth will be my bed.
This nation holds a treasure chest of bounty and of love,
United we are at our best, when push turns into shove,
We celebrate and honor her upon this special day,
Though she may not be perfect now, we’r
e sure to find a way.
With hearts united we shall stand and raise our country’s flag,
With gratitude and great respect, we certainly can brag,
No other country can compare with what we have right here,
America, you are the best, here’s to another year!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!
