  • Photography and Poetry Collaborations-- Lady Liberty

    Photographer and Poetry Collaborations

    This photo by Veronica Yacono is so epic
    I had to write a poem to accompany it
    Veronica, I hope in some small way I did your photo justice. Thank you for graciously allowing to share.

    Veronica Yacono’s

    Lady Liberty

    Lady Liberty's Golden Hour
    won’t turn her back on immigrant calls

    Lighting the way- her eyes do scour-at her feet the needy will fall

    Give me your tired, your poor- huddled masses yearning to be free

    Sail upon my distant shore
    you can lean on me

    As the setting sun lights my torch
    Gold tones I'm in my glory

    Adorning Hudson River's porch
    reminder of ancestral stories

    I stand before you- a welcome sight-
    symbol of hope and freedom

    As each new day turns into night
    I welcome you to my kingdom

    Wracked
    upon an island's
    history
    Douse
    welcome's
    flame
    The game
    has changed
    Turn away
    from past
    victory
    the huddled
    mass
