Treasure Island

America


America

Founding fathers,
History made,
For this great country,
Foundation laid,
Great and small.
Freedom blessed,
Battles were fought,
Death, no less,
Brave men fell,
That we could be,
A mighty nation,
Peacful and free.
But we the people,
Silent be,
Heed no cry,
Although we see,
A great land torn,
Filled with hate,
God grant to us,
If not too late,
A blessing to heal,
The wounds we see,
And be once again,
America free.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
