White House Rose Garden: Nation's Spirit
by Peter Menkin (2000)
We the people dream
you live sometime in rest
visiting the rose garden
at the White House, Mr. President:
part of a Presidential
spirit that lives with almighty
and ancient strengths brought
to new world refreshment,
a hope that is America's
desire for reason. Civilized
republic and visions
of history. More than one
man of power living common
desires for a better world
tended by providence's hand.
The great spirit of nationhood
comes upon the country
this season again, again.
