Sometimes it's hard to remember
That greatness comes first from
Something so small and dependent.
Just as the Bald Eagle chick
That hatches so helpless
Must depend upon parents,
So was the growth of our country,
Finding her wings with thirteen
Colonies and a Declaration of Independence.
Boasting freedom to be necessary
And proper and showing
The world her wings of greatness.
First a poult and then a
Proud parent herself,
Soaring over all the world
Proclaiming that others
Will enjoy freedom,,
While protecting her domain.
