America’s Independence Day Kids Poetry: 4th of July Night

The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky

A white sky bomb fizzed on a black line.

4th of July NightA rocket hissed it’s red signature into the west.

Now a shower of Chinese fire alphabets,

A cry of flower pots broken in flames,

A long curve to a purple spray, three violet balloons –

Drips of seaweed tangled in gold, shimmering symbols of mixed numbers,

Tremulous arrangements of cream gold folds of a bride’s wedding gown –

A few sky bombs spoke their pieces, then velvet dark.

The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky.

∼ Carl Sandburg
