FOURTH OF JULY
Copyright, 1909, by American Press Amo
Snapdragon fired bis volleys
All through the morning hours.
His trumpet Honeysuckle blew
To lead the march of Flowers.
While Dogwoods all barked wildly
And Morning Glory sang,
In blue and gold all into line
The Johnny-jump-ups sprang.
The Bluebells pealed their gayest;
The Lily Bells rang, too ,
The Sweet Peas flung their bannen
All red and white and blue.
The Primrose hung out lanterns
Soon as the sun was gone,
And after dark the Fireflies sent
Up fireworks from the lawn.
Just get up very early
And stay up very late
When next Fourth comes you'll
surely see v
The garden celebrate.
