America the Beautiful

Uploaded: Sep 30, 2019


Every so often I sit down to write, but instead start thinking about the happenings that surround, and the feeling that waxing poetic about food just seems so… well… shallow.

So today the sentiment is different; a Food Party! salute let’s call it, to a tune I find myself singing these days, over and over, more like a prayer than a song.

America the Beautiful

Oh beautiful, for spacious skies

For amber waves of grain

For purple mountain majesties

Above the fruited plain.

America, America

God shed grace on thee

And crowned thy good with brother (and sister) hood

From sea

to shining sea.




- lyrics by Katharine Lee Bates, music by Samuel A. Ward
