America The Beautiful - Poem by Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern, impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness,
And every gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

    Great descriptive language:
    Spacious Skies, Purple Mountain Majesties... great alliteration
    crown thy good with brotherhood - cown our good land with brothership, fellowship etc.
    Confirm thy soul in self-control,
    Thy liberty in law! - in discipline and cooperation may we progress
    liberating strife
    Thine alabaster cities gleam - cities that gleam and sparkle with hope like an alabaster stone.
    - - - - may writing like this be the norm one day again, we can only hope for an intellectual reawakening in America- - - - - - - - - - - (Report) Reply
