Susan Hiatt


I hear the angry cry of those
Who tear our country down
I see the burning of the flag
And all the grief around
And I know there are so many wrongs
That one day right must be
But America is still beautiful to me.
I hear the mighty sounds of war
Upon the other side
I see aggressors everywhere
Who would the world divide
And I know my country is always there
Still trying to keep the peace
And America is still beautiful to me.

Sing a song about America
Of those who died to set us free
Be so proud of the Red, White and Blue
Of our country and liberty.

I look and see the beauty
Of this our blessed land
And know the joys of freedom
Were won by souls of man
And we must go where duty calls
For freedom is not free
And America is still beautiful to me.

I look and see old glory
In every corner of this land
She's there to share her blessings
With those who can not stand
And there I know she'll always stay
Until all mankind is free
And American is still beautiful to me.

Sing A song about America..

Susan, another beautiful poem written from the heart. What would be even more beautiful would be to hear you sing it. Great Memorial Day reminder of its true message.

Should I be able to hear it, too? If so, I want to. Am I doing something wrong?
Beautiful poem.
