This Homely Land

By Amanda Pizzolatto (Rated G)

This massive land that I see
Spread from sea to shining sea
Is a very unique lot
It’s been called a melting pot,
The land of the brave and free,
The land of dreams and opportunity ,
A land with liberty for all,
But home, that is it’s major call.
For home is the proper word,
For what else would you defend with sword?
For home has its ups and downs,
Home is full of smiles and frowns
Home sees life’s lessons through
While the winds of change and chance blew
Taking us in so many different places
And showing us so many different faces
What will we learn, what will we see?
Differences between the trees?
Or as a forest standing strong
Listening to a harmonious song.
