A Family For…

A Family For…
I hold a rifle
My son wields an axe
My wife has a Bible
My daughter – the facts
Together, we stand as
A family of four
An artist intended
We stand for much more
We stand for our right to
Stand out with pride
The freedoms some fought for
The love that abides
We stand here as statues
Frozen mid-stride
A family of virtues
Known nation-wide
As pure as clear water
As sure as its flow
We stand on this fountain
So others will know
How solid our bond is
How firm and how rare
We are the family
Atop Fountain Square
C 2002 David Brunoehler
