The Music of Freedom by Rachelle Allen
Four for the Fourth writing prompt entry

Here comes the parade
Fifes and drums and bugle corps
Music of our past.

The colonists played
strong battle hymns for the troops.
HOPING for freedom.

"Star Spangled Banner,"
"G-d Bless America," and
"This Is My Country."

These are the songs we
proud Americans sing now.
GRATEFUL for freedom.
