I lift my lamp.
I’m not political. I’m just not, and I make no apologies for it. But I do still love my nation and I adore all individuals and I love adore. Issues just appear out of control in our globe proper now and it feels appropriate to combat it by adding beauty to the planet. So when Isabela and I have been talking about what we could draw for you this month, we hit on one thing that felt appropriate. You can download this design to print in 11″x14″ format, or download for a laptop desktop under.
Do you know this poem? It’s at the base of the Statue of Liberty. I remember reading it on a single of my visits there when I lived in NYC.
The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land
Right here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe totally free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
