Happy 4th of July! 

She woke up to a brilliant July sun,

stretched and felt the warmth spilling over,

the sweet breeze of summer flowing through her skin, 

inviting her to bask in joy, 

in freedom, 

a celebration in bold shades 

of red, white & blue! 🇺🇸☀️❤️

Wishing you a Happy 4th of July celebrating America & Freedom with family & friends! 

As always, thank you for stopping by Space to Dream. Have a joyful day! 🙂❤️☀️🇺🇸 -Stacie

Happy 4th of July!

Happy Birthday America! To celebrate, here is one of my favorite 4th of July poems. 

4th of July by Eileen Patten Oliver
I Hear America Singing
I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
The wood-cutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
