    Is it about the Statue of Liberty or a modern American woman freed from Victorian shackles or whatsoever? Is it a recreation of Libertas? Who gave it to whom? Who built it? Whose wish behind the structure? Whose the design? The sky is yours; the dream is yours.Go wherever you like to go, do whatever else it pleases you, takes to your liking. Mind it the freedom is yours; the life is so, of yours, yours only. But do not not be under restricting your dreams and imagination. (Report)Reply

    Crown her with sky
    for she is one of the many
    and she is each of us.
    Beautifully conceived poem. Thanks for sharing.
