My America

(This is another poem from childhood.)

Beyond majestic mountains high
golden fields of grain do lie.
Upon the face of stretching plains
rise mighty cities where refrains
ever musical do swell
as, in melody, they tell
endless tales of valor bold.
In the towns and cities old
lying in that sea of grain
dwells the heart and freedom's strain.
Ringing loud from mount to sea
it offers all humanity
equal rights and liberty.
Ever more shall live its fame --
My America is its name.

    Hi, Leo just browsing, like this excellent poem, i wonder how you feel now, has you wrote this in your childhood... our politician wherever they reside, seem to be systematically dismantling the counties, we once knew...

    Great to see Patriotism I am not aloud to be proud for I am English and even the English hate the English funny considering the language we all communicate in is English.

    Hello Leo Larry, You had a great talent early in life and the pride in your country and people. A mature lateral thinking brain is usually found in a person who has grown by living life. Thank you for bring it into your adult life and sharing, wordancer
