Flag Day Poems for Kids - Children's Patriotic PoetryOur Independence Day

by Roger J. Robicheau

With our first fourth on that seventh month began
A declaration of how we would forge our life
In signature, John Hancock did lead by action
The beginning of a nation which has firmly stood

As we stop to embrace our Independence Day
We should reflect back from this sixth millennium year
Looking to the many trials we have faced as a country
Most vividly, to that infamous September morn

We have never, and never will succumb to threat
Our rigid foundation is of, by, and for the people
We heed the message of President John F. Kennedy
It is what we do for our country that stands us tall

As good citizens we put our trust in God, and each other
Under one flag we stand, united for all the world to see
Our Stars and Stripes form the Old Glory we so revere
And how gallant are those who march with our colors

As Americans, we hold freedom as a certainty
Our bravest have given their all to this end
If not for their willingness, we would not be
The cost of liberty demands this commitment

So many have endured the precious loss of loved ones
We must stay aware of the tragedy they live with
For they, more than any, feel the total cost of sacrifice
Praise their fallen heroes, they left freedom for us

My Dear Americans, as we take time to celebrate
This independence held so deep in our hearts
I hope that the following thoughts of America
Bring forth emotion, for the USA that we love

We shall always be ‘the land of the free'
We shall always be ‘the home of the brave’
We shall always hear ‘God Bless America’
We shall always love ‘Mom and Apple Pie’
