Three stripes for strength and unity (poem)

Tree blossum single

For France:
(Written in response to the bombings in France)

Three stripes for strength and unity

Three stripes for strength and unity,
The blue, the white, and the red,
For freedom and fraternity,
With equality, all proudly said.

These words cannot be deleted,
They stand for one, and for all,
Their nation cannot be defeated,
Their own courage will never fall.

Against anger’s hate, they can win,
With peace, their guide and their hope,
Their love of freedom, deep within,
And with unity they will cope.
