Beautifully adorned, her garments shoned,
  high and round mountains, majestic peeks

Vegetation covering her treasures, hidden
  from the lust of men…men who exploited her
  innocence…an innocence long cared for
  and protected.

Oh Lady, how beautiful were your garments,
  …untarnished by strangers hands. Their
  smiles luring you into false promises.

False promises and dreams and lures, soon
  clashing, causing broken hearts to fear. Fear of
  those who swiftly came with broken promises.

Your love was pure, shone clear, clear
  without the blood that flowed and stained
  …your lovely garments. Your valleys filled
   with trails of tears. 

Laying in fields of lilies, eyes closed as tears
  poured down, down…soaking your blood 
  stained garments, down into your soul.

These strangers, from foreign lands, many of deceit, 
  lacked the spirit of the buffalo…now Liberty, my dear 
  Lady, stand proud of your native land.

Proudly she still stands with freedom and equality 
  ...come one come all, stand by her side, protect
  her from which she has bleed and nearly died 
  …cleanse her garments, cherish her beauty, 
  enjoy the fruits she bears. For it is this 
  Lady that offers unity and strength no other endures.
