NUMBER:602
AUTHOR:Wilbur D. Nesbit (1871–1927)
QUOTATION:Your flag and my flag,
And how it flies to-day
In your land and my land
And half a world away!
Rose-red and blood-red
The stripes for ever gleam;
Snow-white and soul-white—
The good forefathers’ dream;
Sky-blue and true-blue, with stars to gleam aright—
The gloried guidon of the day; a shelter through the night.
ATTRIBUTION:WILBUR D. NESBIT, “A Song for Flag Day,” stanza 1, The Trail to Boyland, p. 96 (1904).
SUBJECTS:Flag
