" The Flag of Love"

Son and Daughter
Treasure the Tattered Flag
of our Love.
This Banner survived
their Revolution.
Threadbare now, 
it has become unutterably Precious.
Like embers,
it glows with the Familial Warmth
 whenever their Breath
comes close enough.
We know
that one Day
its Threads and Colors
will be Bathed
in the Renewing Spring
of a Grandchild's cry
for Freedom.
