“The Lady of the Harbor”

I see her in the distance,
Outlined against the sky,
Colossal and inspiring
To those who pass her by.

She stands there, in the harbor,
Still offering release
To those who flee from bondage
In search of lasting peace.

She is welcoming the weary,
The homeless, and the poor,
Who come from outer darkness
To knock on freedom’s door.

Hold High! the torch of freedom
For all mankind to see,
Grand Lady of the Harbor,
Statue of Liberty.
