“our flag”

I stopped by one summer day
Down at the village green,
Just to watch the flag there wave
And what those colors mean.

Thought about what it stands for
Colors red, white and blue.
Thought about where she’s traveled.
The battles she’s been through.

Her red, symbol of valor,
White stands for purity,
The blue, for perseverance,
A sign of unity.

Though she’s a little tattered
And showing signs of wear
Still waves with grace and honor
After all she’s had to bear.
