1     When Sun paints the desert

3     I climb hills.
4     Wind runs round boulders, ruffles
5     my hair. I sit on my favorite rock,
6     lizards for company, a rabbit,
7     ears stiff in the shade of a saguaro.
8     In the wind, we’re all
9     eye to eye.

10    Sparrow on saguaro watches
11    rabbit watch us in the gold
12    of sun setting.
13    Hawk sails on waves of light, sees
14    sparrow, rabbit, lizards, me,
15    our eyes shining,
16    watching red and purple sand rivers stream down the hill.

17 I stretch my arms wide as the sky
18 like a hawk extends her wings
19 in all the gold light of this, home.

4     A flash of color beneath the sky:
5     Hats off!
6     The flag is passing by!

7     Blue and crimson and white it shines,
8     Over the steel-tipped, ordered lines.
9     Hats off!
10    The colors before us fly;
11    But more than the flag is passing by.

12    Sea-fights and land-fights, grim and great,
13    Fought to make and save the State:
14    Weary marches and sinking ships;
15    Cheers of victory on dying lips;
16    Days of plenty and years of peace;
17    March of a strong land’s swift increase;
18    Equal justice, right, and law,
19    Stately honor and reverend awe;

20    Sign of a nation, great and strong
21    To ward her people form foreign wrong:
22    Pride and glory and honor, -all
23    Live in the colors to stand or fall.

24    Hats off!
25    Along the street there comes
26    A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums;
27    And loyal hearts are beating high;

29    The flag is passing by!
