America, The Beautiful Lyrics
by Katharine Lee Bates - 1913


O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain, <<gack>> LOL, J/K
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!l

O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine!

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!

earworm for the day.

Thank you, CG. It was pretty awesome.

Submit a photo to Sunset magazine - Sunset
Thanks, Kay. Wow, I had forgotten about Sunset magazine! I didn't know they had a place for reader submitted photos. I used to subscribe, then over the years I had kind of forgotten about it. Thanks for re-igniting my interest....I put it in my faves. If I remember correctly, they had some really good recipes as well.

Actually I had kind of forgotten about Sunset Magazine also until I saw your picture.....Sunset was/is the magazine of the west, a little like Southern Living for the south, but more.

Sure does. My foot doctor has it in his office and they are up to date. They are not old issues. Depending on how brilliant I feel when I go there, I either pick up Sunset or a kids magazine while I am waiting, because I know I can do their puzzles and win.

My reply went missing! We have more pretty sunrise pix here on the East Coast but I'm too lazy to get up and take them
