Red Geraniums

Red geraniums against the sky
Make it a deeper blue.
White contrails from a plane’s flyby
Add to this magic hue.

Red, white and blue—a message here.
The colors of our flag;
Reminds us of the lives so dear
Who for their country died.

So plant geraniums everywhere.
Make certain they are red.
Place them on balconies and stairs
To honor our war dead.
