From Alaska to Nebraska,
from the tundra to the corn,
I'm amazed with wide-eyed wonder
at this land where I was born.
From the Blue Ridge to the Rockies,
from the East to way out West,
I'm convinced with every mile
that America's the best.
From the Islands to the deserts,
from the seashore to the sand,
I'm aware of God's creation
oceans blue and canyons grand.
From Atlantic to Pacific,
from the right to the left coast,
I am constantly reminded
why Americans can boast.
From the Bayou to the Boundaries,
from the South to points up North,
we've good cause to wave Old Glory
as we celebrate The Fourth

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
