America the Beautiful

America

Happy Fourth of July.

AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
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!

 

Excerpt from the lyrics of America the Beautiful by Katharine Lee Bates, melody by Samuel Ward.

That is so beautiful and romantic. It's one of those moments in time you wish could last forever and try desperately to burn into your memory. Thankfully, with this gorgeous pic, we can refer to it often. Thanks for catching that golden moment.
