Patriotic poem


To the Editor:

Editor's note: The following poem was published in the April 2 Harbor Light Newspaper in Harbor Springs. It is written by Julie Ann (DeClaire) Dyle, former Grosse Pointe Woods resident and graduate of Star of the Sea High School.

Hanging Out

on Main Street

They're hanging out on Main Street,

A colorful group, they are,

Waving to all who pass by On skateboard, foot or car.

Sunup to sundown

They are proud and persistent,

Through high winds and precipitation,

Remaining wrinkle-free and resistant.

They certainly make a statement

Out there for all to see,

Without a doubt,

Those colors shout

This is the "Land of the Free!"

The multitude of American flags

Long may they wave,

Let them show,

What we already know,

This is the "Home of the Brave!"

Wouldn't it be great to decorate

As far as the eye could see,

Reminding us what's true,

With Red, White and Blue,

This is our "Sweet Land of Liberty!"

So, let Old Glory fly,

From this small town to the Capitol's dome,

Let's sing and rejoice,

In one great voice,

"God Bless America, My Home, Sweet Home!"
