Facts About Kentucky

Kentucky, Wait

(Stella Crafeet Tremble)

Kentucky, wait! I'm coming home
To see the daffodils,
Where dogwood drops its satin blooms
Upon the hazy hills,

Where sheaves of water on a rock
Fall on a wind-bent tree,
Where light and shadow flicker on
In golden harmony.

I'll feel the playful breezes blow
A fragrance from the pine
That clings upon the ridge's crest
Against the timberline.

I'll see the sky-dome sagging
With constellation strain,
Be lulled to peaceful slumber
By the pattering of rain.

Kentucky, wait! I'm coming home
To see such things as these.
No other place does springtime have
Such magic certainties.

Some of these were born here, others just lived a while in the state.

The Kentucky State Flag
The flag background is navy blue. In the center is the state Seal. The two men shaking hands, a pioneer and a statesman, represent all the people of the state. They are acting out the state motto--"United We Stand; Divided We Fall". The Seal is encircled by a wreath. The lower half has sprays of blooming goldenrod (state flower). The upper half says "Commonwealth of Kentucky". The flag, adopted in 1918, was amended in 1928 and 1962.
