The Statue Of Liberty

(for my personal religious twist read d last stanza)

Stands tall and hovering this great landmark lady
The world's most famous gift and token
Welcoming all into Uncle Sam's ethnic potpourri
In her vast melting pot sweet unity awoken.

Pointing as it seems to the star spangled sky
from the land of the stripes and star-spangled banner
Her torch to meet the tourist traveller's eye
while she tires not of standin' in that manner.

Ah this world famous statue
Her fans would love to have her tattoo
as she welcomes all and sundry
from her pedestal a man-made plateau.

If you ever go there
and have time to stare
View her from the colonnade
or view her from the promenade

With that well-known torch lamp
this mother of exiles champ
She does for welcome and freedom stand

A beacon beckoning upon Liberty Island.

On the Seine River stands her model return gift
just downstream from  Eiffel tower
Ah Lady Liberty's one American lady
weilding real super power.

Eiffel designed the Eiffel tower and he Lady Liberty's designer as well
And Bartholdi her sculptor, sculpted her so swell.

Extol I may this famous monument
but mine praise can't compare to 'The New Colossus'
A tribute by her own American by Emma Lazarus
Her face too for Liberty's model quite famous.

And when asked personally what I admired most about Lady Liberty
I sighed and replied, 'atleast she wasn't dressed in a mini or bikini
for liberty is not in libertine but rather in attires of modesty
Why, milady Liberty thank God you're almost dressed like me
I frown at super models whose role model in dress ain't you nor the Virgin Mary.

    An interesting, enjoyable and fun piece; yes, like many Americans, I knew it was a gift crafted by Bartoli; in fact, the statute's face is that of Bartoli's mother - how's that for trivia?

    IMHO, this piece would magnificantly shine from some editing - for me, punctuation is the polish on the gem of one's writing.

    A beautiful description of the mammoth statue, standing proud and erect in the quiet waters of Hudson river! It is indeed an awe inspiring sight. Yes this symbol of liberty is dressed from head to foot and never liberated from the' bondage of an apparel' as many of the cine models are! Enjoyed the twist in the last stanza! ! Superb! !

    Have always loved the Statue of Liberty. My grandparents all came over from Mierto, Sicily and landed on
    Ellis Island. Their names are in the book there. Your poem touched my memory's heart and the gentle
    humor made me smile. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
