1943 War Bond Posters
By Norman Rockwell

(Regarding Norman Rockwell)

with hands that
could illustrate
moments in time
with eyes that saw into
the soul of a nation


blessed with liberty
voices speak freely
the simple the wise
inveigh government
brooking no censorship


blessed with liberty
hearts worship freely
the simple the wise
pray their conscience
without interference


blessed with liberty
hands produce freely
the simple the wise
earn honest rewards
wealth built unobstructed


blessed with liberty
lives enjoyed freely
the simple the wise
secure in their dreams
unoppressed by grave threat

familiar vignettes
relatable scenes
American realism
right for the joy of
a Saturday evening
