The U.S. Flag over Iwo Jima
by: Lisa M. Gordier

Soldiers fought hard
capturing a well-defended hill.

On an island named
Iwo Jima
Soldiers had died.

The U.S. flag was planted.
But wait, too small,
the war photographer said.

a larger flag was ordered
a group of soldiers
needed to plant the new flag

the U.S. Flag flew proudly
once planted on Iwo Jima

and the iconic picture became history
