Ode to 4th of July

I see paraders, service, militaristic precision of the marching.
I hear lots of firecrackers,
Fireworks can be frightening because they’re so noisy.
“ooh” “aww”
I smell New England and America.
The children go way on up to Trinity Church.
We enjoyed seeing from hills and mountains- the beautiful country.
How beautiful, what we are seeing,
Pilgrimage to the shrine, especially Mary feast,
We’ve been blessed as a country.

-By the residents of Taylor Village
