|In the spirit of Independence Day and community pride, we present the poem
"Saga - Granite City" by Gladys Chapman
|Near a great and mighty river, stands a city small with pride.
Built by men of many nations, working shoulder side by side.
Iron and steel has been their trademark, with enameled pots and pans,
Many tanks and combat armour, they have sent to other lands.
When the threat of war loomed greatest, they were there to do their share.
You will find our young men fighting, for our freedom everywhere.
There are schools and there are churches, there are parks and sheltered nooks.
With a warmth of friendly culture and a wealth of famous books.
Seeking justice, healing illness, holding out a helping hand.
You will find our city standing, as few others in a land.
All together in great union, for we really love and care.
Not alone for those among us, but for people everywhere.
Yes, the city it is smoky
This so often, I've been told
Tho, the outer rim is blackened
Lies within, a heart of gold.
