america

	
She was planted July 4th 1776
Her leaves are green
Her branches stretch all around the world
Her fruits come forth in all seasons
Her roots are firm on the ground
She gives shade to passer by
Great & Small meet under her shade
Oh! God what a great tree on this planet

Insects attacked her leaves
But it withered not
The wind blew strongly
Yet, her branches remained intact
A pit was dug roundabout
Her roots were undermined
Oh! Oh! Oh!
The potter brought forth the clay

She looks at the sun
Her strength is renewed 
She smiles in every heart
Her hands full of result
She embraces all nations in her house 
She is made of all colors
Yet one united voice 
She is a symbol of peace
She is no other then
United States of America
A nation with vision, love everlasting
