White House Rose Garden
By Peter Menkin

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. A hope for 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 again, again.
