    Start working at home with Google. It’s the most-financially rewarding I've ever done. On tuesday I got a gorgeous BMW after having earned $8699 this last month. I actually started five months/ago and practically straight away was bringin in at least $96, per-hour....…….....HEAR www.GeoSalary.com

    This poem is divinely beautiful, and very aspiring. All Americans (all Poets) should revere and remember the name of Katharine Lee Bates. This is really wonderful. The words are divine and mystical.

    Hey yo! i read your poem called ' America the Beautiful ' & i lost my focus, personal attribute & listening skill, hence i believe that everything has it's own place & time, but the fact remains! I couldn't believe that this was my home country.

    Your correspondence will be highly appreciated.

    Have a nice day!

Best Poem of Katharine Lee Bates

Eavesdropping

THOUGH the winds but stir on their hoary thrones
Of hemlock and pungent pine,
All the whispering woodland tones
Gossip of things divine, —
Why God is gray in the granite rock,
And green in the lichen flake,
And swift in the darting swallow-flock,
And slow in the lapping lake;
Why God is sweet in the hermit-thrush,
And hoarse in the frog; and why
His touch on the bee is golden plush,
And gauze on the stinging fly;
Why God is life in the mushroom there,
And death in the toadstool here;
Mirth in the dancing maidenhair;
In its hidden adder, fear.
Oh,...

Anniversary Hymn

[sung to tune: "All Saints New"]



Our fathers, in the years grown dim, reared slowly, wall by wall
A holy dwelling-place for Him, that filleth all in all.
They wrought His house of faith and prayer, the rainbow round the Throne,
A precious temple builded fair on Christ the Cornerstone.
