Poetry Friday: The Star-Spangled Banner

July 2nd, 2010 (11:01 am)
thirsty

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: Four Jacks and a Jill score music

O! say can you see by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

- lyrics to The Star-Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July, everyone!
