Patriotic Poems are a wonderful example of classic American poetry. Reading American poems from history can transport us back to a bygone era and allow us to glimpse what it might have been like to live back then. Poems about America are perfect Veterans day poems, Memorial day poems and Independence day poems too!
Some historical patriotic poetry authors have generously taken "poetic license" to tell their story, as in the case of the famous poem titled "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere" or "Paul Revere's Ride". Sometimes the stories told in the poems about America do not always match the historical version. Read the story of Paul Revere's ride - "The British aren't coming?", according to the Paul Revere House museum.

While not exactly a poem, Irving Berlin's "God Bless America" lyrics can also be enjoyed as poetry.
