Letters From Philadelphia

Ink flowed to paper // quills sharpened for signing

As each man took his turn

Some with small delicate writing

John Handcock with large bold flourish

Big enough for the King to plainly see

Risking life and property they signed

Revolution now at hand they took their stand

Quills continued flowing ink to paper

As letters were sent home announcing the news

Telling what was already known before hand

Postmasters kept busy with the flow

As Letters from Philadelphia marked this day

When a declaration of independence

Changed the future of mankind

At home and abroad
