In the Town Center

 

In the Town Center,

flags adorned sidewalks,

red, white & blue colored

buntings and banners hung

across the crowded streets.

The clock tower chimed,

announcing that it’s now

time for the July 4th parade.

As trumpets did report,

the drum beats retort

the Soldiers, Sailors,

Airman and Marines

marched proudly on

wearing dress uniforms.

I remember the sounds

of hoof beats on ground

hauling caissons, cannon,

and wagons with old war

veterans waving to all.

My Dad stood there,

a little graying of hair,

hand upon his heart as

the Flag bearer marched by.

I did as he did, and still do

to this day. Hold my hand to

heart as our Flag waves on.
