I'Ll Be Taking America - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

I'll be taking America from the inside
And giving her of my complete love
Where clouds from the high sky glide
And drift with my heart songs above
I'll be sowing my love at her freedom’s feet
To find out if she likes me or not
And if she will come on to me and read
In what in words and music I've got

I'll be taking my America on to my home
With every soul that wants to conquer me
To bring me to their alter and dome
To set every word and my tones free
For my existences is for everyone's love
In a dream that never shall settle low
Fore I'll rise like the highest cloud above
In tomorrow's summer for the new glow

I will be taking my songs to her mountain
And filling my words with her hope
Reaching rivers of truth deepest fountain
By holding on to every liberties robe
I shall never be disputed to the deep
Of the anguish that has lost all fate
For America are my songs and words to keep
In each my thought and ongoing debate
