beloved eagle of freedom


     She rode the wind like most birds in flight

Spreading her wings to show her might.

She is the American eagle of freedom and is seen everywhere

And wherever freedom rings – she will be there!

You will see her with the statue of liberty in the harbor of New York

Where all nations gather to sit and talk.

You will see her on our currency- her majestic wings spread so wide

She stands for freedom, on that we cannot deny.

She sat on the heads of four great presidents, and gazed

Across the beautiful view of MT RUSHMORE in all its glory

Telling of freedoms magnificent story.

She has sat on treetops and mountaintops all across the nation

And seen beauty and devastation.

Yet she still stands as proud as can be

For she is our history.
