Home Sweet Home

America, land of…
Sharp, snow-capped mountains,
Majestically looming in the sky
Deserts with nothing but dust-
Silent, dusty, and dry
Unbroken plains
With grass rolling like the sea
Sandy, sparkling seashores;
Sunsets careening them, serene as can be
Misty, lush forests,
Some dark, some dangerous
Roaring, rapid rivers
Daring the adventurous
America, filled with…
Wise, discerning people,
Diligent, and free
Persevering, patriotic people,
Proud of their country
Wherever I may chance to roam-
God bless America, my home sweet home
