Thank You Veterans!

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!




O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.

O beautiful for heroes prov'd
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life.

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.

Katherine Bates
