Presidents by Raymond A. Foss
The men who have led the nation
through the years and struggles,
the hope and promise
within the dream that is America.
That seed planted in this fertile soil
nurtured, guarded, by each generation
successive and cumulative,
changing but constant.
Humans, with flaws, passion;
with vision and gravitas.
Stewards of our land for years only
but for posterity as well,
a legacy for our future.
In their hands, we have entrusted
that which is America.
