Here is a poem graciously donated by Judith A.Lindberg for your holiday enjoyment.
Here in the harbor, made famous by her very existence,
Stands a lady, polished by a new American pride...
And her name is Liberty.
She holds a torch ignited by the flame of love,
And from her raised hand and her gentle eyes
She offers a blessing of reassurance with silent lips:
"Give me your weary, your dreamless, your hopeless,
Those who have lost faith in themselves and our country.
Send these, the embittered, to me.
I am living proof of what a nation of people can do,
When they believe, when they commit, when they join hearts.
I lift my torch beside the door that remains open,
A golden opportunity for all who enter,
When the hope is peace
And the reason is freedom for all."
