A SALUTE TO AMERICA

(From the Red.White,. Blue and Gray)

Welcome to Baby Boomer Patriotism 101

We’re glad you came today–

Before you dismiss us graying seniors

Here’s a word on the Red,White,Blue and Gray.

Although we may may be gray-headed

(And usually prefer driving tin the slow lane)

We still always get to where we’re going–

—-And Old Glory’s honor is our great gain!

Though America’s torch of Liberty is burning low

—We must raise it up much higher;

You can count on the Red,White Blue and Gray

We’re here to keep fueling Freedom’s Fire.

We faithfully fought in Korea and Vet Nam

And victoriously won World War II too;

We fought for the Freedom of America

The undefeated Red.White and Blue.

Socialism is not America’s Constitutional goal

—–We’re taking our great nation back

Back to Freedom, Back to God

No more skidding off America’s track.

So now although…

Drink your morning Cup of Courage

ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INADVISABLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL

Poetdoug's Blog

Each morning I drink a Cup of Courage—-

CUP OF COURAGE

Drink now a Cup of Courage

With strength your soul fulfill;

Renew your power from above

Determine to stand firm and still.

Drink from the Cup of Courage

Let God strengthen now thy heart;

Drink deeply from the flask of Faith

He’s standing with us from the start.

Drink now a Cup of Courage

Lord God Jehovah doth undertake;

In quietness and calm confidence

Stand still–let naught your faith shake!

ON EAGLE’S WINGS

Poetdoug's Blog

Today I flew on Eagle’s Wings

Far above the maddening crowd;

I soared past the towering trees

In and out of azure cotton clouds.

I circumvented stars and galaxies

My prayerful soul seemed to sprout wings

Methinks I glimpsed the Face of God

Today I flew on Eagle’s Wings.

Duct Tape Dad

Poetdoug's Blog

My Dad can fix anything—

That’s a fact, simple and pure;

Just give him a roll of Duct Tape

And he can repair it, that’s for sure.

Dad may not be a licensed plumber

Or a registered electrician that endures;

But with a roll  old Duct Tape—-

He can fix anything, that’s for sure!

AMERICAN SOLDIER I AM

Poetdoug's Blog

I sleep in dirt fox holes

With little to eat–

I stnad at my post

In cold, heat and sleet.

My Dad stood watch in the jungles of Nam

—A faithful American Soldier—I Am.

I’lm here by my own choice

I’m here day and night—

My Gramps died at Pearl Harbour

On that fateful night—

I’m taking my turn for one and all

Making sure Old Glory never shall fall.

I’m away from my family

My dear kis and my home;

My wife sends me pictures

000Oftime’s I feel alone.

All I ask is you pray for this son of Uncle Sam

—A faithful American Soldier–I Am.

A SALUTE TO AMERICAN SOLDIERS

Poetdoug's Blog

This Memorial Day weekend spotlights the ‘Unconventional love” of our American solders for their country.Here’s My Salute to them:

AMERICAN SOLDIER I AM

I sleep in fox holes

With little to eat

I stand at my post

In cold, heat and sleet.

My Dad stood watch i the jungles of Nam

A faithful American Soldier—-I Am.

I’m here by my own choice

I’m here day and night–

My Gramps died at Pearl Harbor

On that now fateful night;

I’m taking my turn for one and all

Making sure that Old Glory never shall fall.

I’m away from my loved ones and family

My own kids and my home;

My wife mails me pictures

Often I’m afraid and alone—

All I ask is that you pray for this son of Uncle Sam

A dedicated and faithful American Soldier—I Am.

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.

Poetdoug's Blog

I would love to visit greening Dublin, Ireland on St. Patty’s Day this year.

IRISH GREEN

come take a stroll with me today

Through lush green Irish heather;

We’ll follow fairies along the glen

——-Just you and I together.

Like little folk from storybook times

We’ll climb the greening emerald hills;

Scouting for more four leaf clovers

—-Enjoying our Springtime fill——-

Finding more thrills than any poet’s blarney

Letting our minds echo on each green scene;

Come wander along today with me

——Through fields of Irish Green!
