June's Flag

by Annette Wynne

June flung her flag out
Shining wet with dew,—
Red and white the clover
And a sky of blue!

June sang a song to the flag of the free,
The wind caught the music and sang it to the tree,
The sky caught the music and sang it 'cross the sea;
The sea caught the music and flung it round the world;
Then a million flags like June's flag were instantly unfurled,
So sing on forever, O wind, and sky, and sea,
And wave on so forever, bright flag of the free!
