I randomly came across this on a B-36 gunner's reunion website and I liked it so much I thought I'd share it with everyone here.  I don't know who wrote it or where it came from but anyway...


A TOAST TO THE US FLAG

Here’s to the RED of it—There’s not a thread of it—No, nor a shred of it—In all the spread of it,

From foot to head.

But heroes bled for it—Faced steel and lead for it—Precious blood shed for it,

Bathing it RED.

Here’s to the WHITE of it—Thrilled by the sight of it—Who knows the might of it—But feels the right of it,

Through day and night?

Womanhood’s care for it—Made manhood dare for it—Purity’s prayer for it,

Keeps it so WHITE.

Here’s to the BLUE of it—Beautiful view of it—Heavenly hue of it-- Star-spangled dew of it,

Constant and true.

Diadems gleam for it—States stand supreme for it--Liberty’s beam for it,

Brightens the BLUE.

Here’s to the whole of it—Stars stripes and pole of it—Body and soul of it—O and the roll of it,

Sun shining through.

Hearts in accord for it—Swear by the sword for it—Thanking the Lord for it,

RED, WHITE, and BLUE.
