Beloved United States, a Work in Progress

We sing beneath these “spacious skies” where proudly flies this symbol of the land we love. We sing, “God shed His grace on thee,” land where we’re free, because the brave, so much they gave. “May God thy gold refine,” we sing. Sweet peace, please bring. Divisions, quell. Unrest, dispel!
Quoted parts from "America the Beautiful" June 10, 2021 entered in Brian Strand's All Yours (June 10) contest

That writing is so beautiful My family is so patriotic. I love your last four lines. So important right now. I would love to print this from my computer and keep it in a red frame with a blue matte for my living room which is red white and blue. It's lovely and important.

Nicely done Janice. America the beautiful is one of my favorite songs, especially when Ray Charles sings it. Good luck:) Hoping you are well.
