4th JULY INDEPENDENCE DAY
by Christian Lacdael

With new guards for security,
To oust king George's lunacy,
Faith of the greatest purity,
Makes liberty a legacy,
A belief one can own their fate,
Has the power to captivate,
Dreams of an independent state,
Prepd for others to imitate,
Words worth that of any royal,
Proclaim all men are equal,
Ideals to which to be loyal,
Are to England's rule a sequel,
The past seems but precursory,
To a day that spurs pride and glee,
An annual anniversary,
For those in the land of the free.

INDEPENDENCE DAY
by Joseph T. Renaldi

More than peace and harmony,
I wish for you this Independence Day.
More than a glorious community reunion
With a famous celebrity leading the way.

More than the precious moments
With kinfolk who are loyal and true.
More than the colorful fireworks,
A display that is exciting and new.

I wish you jubilation unending
With much respect and genuine love.
I wish you an everlasting unification,
And guidance from the Supreme Maker above.

I wish you the same euphoria
Of every worldly Independence Day,
When rivals ceased hostilities
And a national flag marked the way.

SONNET: 14th AUGUST’S NIGHT
by Abeera Rahat

Drops falling down
Clouds thunder-clapping
& the winds have blown
Ya ! Look into my town

The Sky is celebrating
Independence of my country
Showing it's blessing
Ya ! Look the stars shining

It's just the arrival
The blessed arrival
& I must wait
To see the morning dew

The dew with soothing sunlight
& a wish Tomorrow will be bright

THAT SWEET INDEPENDENCE DAY!
By Saurabh Saxena

Sweet were those days,
I wish they cud stay
Those wonderful days after,
that sweet Independence day!

When she was the center
of the circle that I was
When she was the touch,
of that gifted king Midas
When she shone through my heart,
like a dazzling light divine
And when her breath was no less,
than an intoxicating vintage wine!
In those few days,
that now seem like eternity
Life was ethereal,
each moment an ecstasy
And I was like a river,
Waiting to meet the sea
Ready to offer everything I had,
selflessly unto thee!

Curled up in our blankets,
our SMSes short and sweet
Sometimes we discussed,
the odds that we had to beat
But mostly we shared fantasies,
in words candidly indiscreet
And then a shower of kisses,
racing through the air
Covering miles and furlong,
burdened with the secret of our affair
Would reach their destination,
simultaneously at both ends
And such would be their fire,
the intensity in their intent
It would leave no doubt,
that our love was Godsend!

So frequent were those visits,
those change of plans
I still recall those moments,
with mirth and elan
When she would finalize,
the names of our future kids
And I would draw honeymoon plans,
With all the naughtiness they hid
But even my best efforts,
wudn't satisfy her my dear
And when she would modify them,
with things so weirdly queer
I wud just stare and marvel,
at her brilliant sanguine flair!

All her decisions,
the pushes and the thrust
That lead our relation
Towards rot and rust
I now understand fully
Were necessary and just
To follow the wishes of those
who gave her birth, and
brought her up from petty dust
To command their utmost trust
is to me an absolute must!

Still what is love,
without quarrels a few
The rose looks lovelier,
with a few drops of dew
But when that dew is replaced,
by a downpour of hail
It leaves the rose,
dull, insipid and flail
So I am sorry my love,
for those times I made you cry
Without you my Rose,
my garden seems so dry
Now With you gone,
each moment I die
This pain will only leave,
once I let my soul fly!

INDEPENDENCE DAY
by Yolonda Lee

Independence Day
is not to be taken lightly
for some have died unjustly
but received by God as brave
so as we remain on earth as beings of God
let freedom continue to ring and sing through our hearts
liberty is for all
through prayer and God’s power the enemy shall fall
as long as we stand united
hand in hand
we must appreciate every color and creed
cause we serve the Almighty God, The Christ
which has made us all free

THE NEW WORLD
by Ross H Bruce

Under the hot sun seven seas from the Crown
Tablet of freedom she holds in her arm.
And under her bare feet, the land where she stands
She lights up the new world, a torch in her hand.

Above the northern sky, the history begun
Lakes of courage, heroes fought and gunned.
And when the snow died, an eagle soared the sky
The new world was borne, equality in mind.

Below the southern stars, brothers once at war
Visions and dreams, justice for everyone
And amongst all men, color must be one;
Shackles were snapped, the truth won the war.

Across the golden bay, legend of time
Gate to the West, Eternal Hope lies.
And in the evening, the stars glitter the sky
Bridge of Peace shall forever stand.

CONCORD HYMM
By Ralph Waldo Emerson
 
By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world,

The foe long since in silence slept,
Alike the Conqueror silent sleeps,
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone,
That memory may their deed redeem,
When like our sires our sons are gone.

Spirit! who made those freemen dare
To die, or leave their children free,
Bid time and nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and Thee.

O SHIP OF STATE
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
 
Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O UNION, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
’T is of the wave and not the rock;
’T is but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee,
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o’er our fears,
Are all with thee,—are all with thee!

GOOD NIGHT
by Carl Sandburg
 
Many ways to say good night.

Fireworks at a pier on the Fourth of July
spell it with red wheels and yellow spokes.
They fizz in the air, touch the water and quit.
Rockets make a trajectory of gold-and-blue and then go out.
Railroad trains at night spell with a smokestack mushrooming a white pillar.
Steamboats turn a curve in the Mississippi crying a baritone that crosses lowland cottonfields to razorback hill.

It is easy to spell good night.
Many ways to spell good night.

GEETANJALI
by Rabindranath Tagore

"Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been
broken up into fragments by
narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from
the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches
its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason
has not lost its way into the dreary
desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is lead forward by thee
into ever-widening thought and action-
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father,
let my country awake."
