May the sun in his course visit no land more free, more happy, more lovely, than this our own country! ~Daniel Webster
T'was the night before the 4th, when all through the land
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The Flag was hung on the dock with great care,
In hopes that Independence Day soon would be there.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from TravBuddy Central to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name
Daniel Webster-Benjamin Franklin- Dwight D. Eisenhower-
Lee Greenwood- William J. Clinton-
Henry Cabot Lodge- Francis Scott Key- William Faulkner-
Ulysses S. Grant-Henry Cuyler Bunner- Abraham Lincoln
Some are still living some passed
Here are their thoughts for this Independence Day
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly
As I drew in my head, and was turning around
The ghost of Independence Day past was nowhere to be found
Then I remembered what they all say,
It is not with your eyes
You experience this day!
"Happy Independence Day to all, and to all a good-night!"
