JULY

Acrostic and Ruba'i poetry titled JULY--USA Flag and Pledge of Allegiance

July to me here in the USA is the patriotic month.
As we once again celebrate Independence Day I am reminded of the words of our Pledge of Allegiance to our Flag

Freedom Lost

Amsterdam July 6 1942
Anne Frank lost her freedom
Let us never forget
‘Twas only 71 years ago today
The Frank Family hid away

June 24

June, today you are twenty four,
And soon, you will be no more.
I wonder what your final days hold in store?
What adventures will you have me explore,
In the next six days, before,
July comes to shut your door?
