Congratulations, Usa! - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen
Today you gather and dance
Celebrate the great moments
in your history, inaugurate
Barack and Joe to lead you.
Today you honour your virtues
and values, the creed by which
your founders have laid down
the fundamental law of the land.
Today you sing your hymn,
Pay tribute to your flag
And recite the credo of freedom,
equality and human dignity.
Today is the moment to mark
yourself as one nation, bounded
by the common hope and vision
as individuals and community
under God's blessings and mercy.
Tillykke! Mabuhay! Hurrah!
