Golden waters

Winter brings a quiet

Gris to grind on another day

Acrostic Poem: Honoring President George Washington’s Birthday, February 22, 1732

George Washington by PamelaWLucas

General you led us through Valley Forge to many victories

Energy flourished in your tall frame

One among yourself, standing in glory

Riding on Nelson’s back, you must have been grand

Greatness came and visited you each day, lingering

Every person, man or woman loved to be in your presence

Washington is a name that is known to us all

Among all those who have led us, you remain in our hearts

Such a kind and respectful man who simply wanted to farm

Helping and guiding, directing and leading

In the face of danger you grew strong and never faltered

Nelson was your steady steed, a Chestnut that carried you

Giving of yourself, through sorrow and lonely moments

Teaching the troops how to fight the British

Only one among himself, “The Father of Our Nation”

Never to be forgotten, The Soldier, The Hero, The President
