Untitled

BY:VERNE W. AND RUTH B. RAMPTON

Below the lofty mountains
Toward the shimmering Salty Sea,
Lies a land of glorious promise
It’s a place I long to be
With its broad fields and its meadows
Nestled ‘neath a sheltered vale
Lies my home–a land of promise
Keep me always on the trail.
Oh! It’s Syracuse and home again
In this sheltered land of God
Shall I live with joy unchanging
May my feet forever trod.


This poem is from the History of Syracuse book that’s available at the Syracuse Museum.
