Fourth of July is right around the corner, and although it is going to be a fabulous long weekend with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, family reunions, etc., it should also be a day to remember the men and women who fought for our independence, freed us from foreign powers, and allowed us to become the country we are today. On this day, commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

Independence Day is the most important national holiday of the United States. It is a federal holiday and many politicians make it a point on this day to appear at a public event to praise the nation’s heritage, laws, history, society and people.

Independence day celebrations are often accompanied by patriotic songs such as the national anthem “The Star-Spangled Banner,” “God Bless America,” “America the Beautiful,” “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee,” “This Land Is Your Land,” “Stars and Stripes Forever,” “Yankee Doodle” and “Dixie.”

But why not also celebrate the holiday with poetry? Here are five poems perfect to celebrate the 4th of July.

The New Colossus. By Emma Lazarus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

America. By Claude McKay

Although she feeds me bread of bitterness, And sinks into my throat her tiger’s tooth, Stealing my breath of life, I will confess I love this cultured hell that tests my youth. Her vigor flows like tides into my blood, Giving me strength erect against her hate, Her bigness sweeps my being like a flood. Yet, as a rebel fronts a king in state, I stand within her walls with not a shred Of terror, malice, not a word of jeer. Darkly I gaze into the days ahead, And see her might and granite wonders there, Beneath the touch of Time’s unerring hand, Like priceless treasures sinking in the sand.

I Hear America Singing. By Walt Whitman

I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear, Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong, The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam, The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work, The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck, The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands, The wood-cutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown, The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing, Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else, The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly, Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.

Good Night. By Carl Sandburg

Many ways to say good night. Fireworks at a pier on the Fourth of July spell it with red wheels and yellow spokes. They fizz in the air, touch the water and quit. Rockets make a trajectory of gold-and-blue and then go out. Railroad trains at night spell with a smokestack mushrooming a white pillar. Steamboats turn a curve in the Mississippi crying a baritone that crosses lowland cottonfields to razorback hill. It is easy to spell good night. Many ways to spell good night.

Cooperation. By J. Mason Knox

It ain’t the guns nor armament, Nor funds that they can pay, But the close co-operation, That makes them win the day. It ain’t the individual, Nor the army as a whole, But the everlasting team-work Of every bloomin’ soul.

Invited Speakers:

Fluids are ubiquitous in nature, science and engineering. Observations of a range of fluid and fluid-like behavior can be found throughout atmospheric and ocean science, astrophysics, chemistry, biology and ecology. Many of these phenomena are modeled by the partial differential equations of fluid mechanics. These are some of the most difficult partial differential equations to analyze, as they are nonlinear and usually nonlocal.

There will be approximately 15 invited speakers and ample time will be alloted for discussions. A poster session will be a part of the workshop. Please use the poster registration form to submit your title and abstract.

We may be able to partially cover travel and local expenses for some junior participants, mainly postdoctoral fellows and advanced graduate students. Applications for financial support should be submitted by Friday April 1, 2016. Early applications will be given a priority.

The event is a part of the NSF Focused Research Group (FRG) project involving the groups of Peter Constantin (Princeton), Tom Hou (Caltech), Sasha Kiselev (Rice), Lenya Ryzhik (Stanford), and Vladimir Sverak (Minnesota).


A Villanelle for Mother’s Day

 

A villanelle for Mother’s Day
Should take me just about an hour:
Writing it is child’s play.

Because I know just what to say,
And rhyming’s quite within my power,
To write it should be child’s play.

Yet plain speech is not my way:
I look for leaves to shade my flower,
This villanelle for Mother’s Day.

I do not wish to sound too fey,
Obscure, mystic, gushy, sour–
Arggh! Writing’s never child’s play!

Yes, childish! To my dismay,
Far beyond the allotted hour,
This villanelle for Mother’s Day

Dawdles on. Let me just say
It plain: I love you, and so end our
Villanelle for Mother’s Day.
(Well … writing it
was child’s play.)
