Thursday Scrawl: Turn that Phrase!

Have you ever heard a song and wished you had been the one to come up with that turn of phrase? Among songs that I am compelled to love if only for their unique phrasing, The Star Spangled Banner is one of my favorites. I have an image of Mr. Key looking up to Old Glory and seeing her still holding her own among the bright lights.

"Oh, say can you see
by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed
at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars
thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched
were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare,
the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night
that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

Pick a line from a song that has struck you as poetic and write a post using it as your jumping off point. Link up and share the love!
