  • Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

  • With conquering limbs astride from land to land: Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch,

  • Whose flame lightning, and her name Glows is the imprisoned world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air- Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand 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 free,

  • The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost, to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
