LADY LIBERTY, A POEM FOR MY AMERICAN CHUMS HERE ON SOUP

Behold, a lady standing her ground,
Wielding her torch, a light for the masses,
Below her cruel waves begin to pound
for a storm comes, stalks and harasses. 

Blow harsh winds, blow! She will never waver!
A new home she vows, come fury and flood,
Freedom shields the brave while scorning terror,
And condemns the shed of innocent blood.

Naught will mar her tabula ansata,
Naught will sever any ray from her crown,
There stands the dream, man’s desiderata,
There stands a truth that naught can strike down.

Liberty shall reign due to Providence,
A symbol of peace and independence.

    Incredibly relevant based on the current storms. As a Canadian I have always enjoyed our Neighbors to the North. I do beleive they are misunderstood by a large part of the World.

    A grandiose expression of friendship here, Cyndi...love the Latin expressions that piqued me to examine the statue once again..I close my eyes and envision Lady Liberty screaming freedom as she holds tight to her sacred tablet thru the storm....a sonnet was a superb vehicle to deliver this heartfelt message...hope none of the Soupers were injured thru these atrocious storms...wondrous sonnet! gwendolen
