Fireworks: 4th Of July Poem For Students

Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. The Congress actually voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.

Fireworks: English Poetry On 4th Of July

Not guns, not thunder,
but a clutter of clouded drums
That announce a fiesta:
abruptly, fiery needles Circumscribe
on the night boundless
chrysanthemums.

Softly, they break apart,
they flake away,
where Darkness, on a svelte hiss,
swallows them.

Delicate brilliance: a bellflower opens, fades,
In a sprinkle of falling stars.
Night absorbs them
With the sponge of her silence.
4th of July Festival
