The history of Prosperous Snow written for the group Reminiscences
An Old Fashion 4th of July Parade
Sirens proclaim the approach of Old Glory!
A general leading his troops in reiveew,
the Stars and Stripes halt
to receive his due.
Rising in unity, the crowd salutes!
Rank on rank troops pass in review!
displaying family units,
proudly ride in late model convertibles.
Section by sections warriors pass,
divided by uniform division, and age.
Model T Fords, '55 Caddies, and horses and riders,
escort the Star Spangled Banner
through the center of town.
Convoys of vehicles in perfect formation,
boats and floats
carrying t-ball teams,
groups with various religious affiliations,
and political parties out for the votes.
Battalion after battallion marches in review.
High school bands
playing countless renditions
of The Stars and Stripes Forever,
and veteran who served proudly in war.
All march to the beat of the National Anthem!
All bless the sacrifices,
which paid freedom's ransom.
