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

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon hand

Glows world-wide welcome, her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
