America - Poem by ENOCH JOHN

Land of freedom and opportunity,
Oh! Great colossus of the seas.
How my heart reaches out to thee
To experience thy pomp and greatness!

Land of the stalwart and the brave,
Oh! Mighty Eagle of the North!
Many happy memories linger
Of thy achievements and conquests.

Oh! America, land of the Rockies,
Plains of Georgia and limitless Prairies;
Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Superior and Eerie
Reflect thy beauteous wonder!

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson,
Two giants without equal!
And Abraham Lincoln deserves his place,
For his honesty I'm sure!

Oh! America, land of the Great Seal,
How I'll like to say to thee:
Return to thy first love,
In God we trust, it was said!
