Kansas City Beautiful ~ Poems About the Places We Love

Drawings by Esther Boquist.

LIBERTY MEMORIAL

Though its tower be granite, the masonry seems
Just a symbol upbearing our loftiest dreams;
For it typifies longing, and carries the soul
To the height of that longing near glory's far goal.

As we gaze at the tower through shimmering light,
Not the polished blocks only, arise on our sight,
But its spiritual meaning ennobles our thought,
To embrace the deep service, that chivalry wrought.
