From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. &quot;Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!&quot; cries she With silent lips. &quot;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!&quot; </li></ul>
