Rowing, The Fourth

Rowing, the Fourth

When the rower had finished
His morning practice,
He thought to have fun,
And worked his shell in such a way
As to sew the design of the flag
On the surface of the river.
It was, after all, the Fourth,
His own watery firework
He took the liberty to execute
In salute.
