Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor

SL1

 

The New Colossus

by Emma Lazarus

dc1

 

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

SL2

 

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

SL3

 

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

SL4

dc2

 

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Sl5

 

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Sl6

dc3

 

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

SL8

 

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

Sl9

dc4

 

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

Sl10

 

With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

Sl11

dc5

 

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

Sl13

 

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Sl12

dc6

 

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

Sl14

 

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Sl15
