“What the American Flag Means to Me” poems

Sunday, June 24, 2018 by The Press in Local News

First Place: Logan Kuder

Willow Lane Elementary School

Teacher: Mr. Sean Finnegan

My Banner Yet Waves

My flag stands tall,

red, white and blue.

50 stars for me and you.

Waving high over our land.

Hand over heart as I stand.

The United States is what I call,

Freedom, liberty and justice for all.

Showing respect for our flag is what I know.

This was taught to me as I started to grow.

Today I’m a scout with Troop 431.

Honoring our flag is number one.

Ceremonies, parades and at all meetings,
