America~CALIFORNIA~by rldubour

Knowing America through Poetry




The state motto is: “Eureka!”
A Greek word meaning; “I have found it”
Adopted in eighteen-forty-nine,
Alludes to the finding of gold nuggets.

The state flower is the Poppy;
The giant Redwood is the tree.
The animal is the Grizzly Bear,
It would be best to let him be!

The largest railroad museum
Can be found in Sacramento.
And if you are a kid at heart,
You can purchase a memento.

If you visit Pacific Grove,
Do not molest a butterfly.
A five-hundred dollar fine they say
And Mom or Dad will tan your hide!

The Iron Door Saloon in Groveland
Open since eighteen-fifty-two.
With cowboys still wearing six guns,
And a piano player too!

Four-thousand and six-hundred years ago,,
In the Inyo National Forest.
You will find the Bristle Cone Pine,
Not to be found at any florist.

In Continental America,
California holds the record.
For the lowest and the highest
points that nature will accord

Death Valley~~ at two-hundred and

Eighty-two feet below sea level.

The highest point isMount Whitney

This gives a feeling of revel.

At SequoiaNational Park,
We find the largest living tree.
At one-hundred and two feet round,
The true giants for all to see.

Now it’s time for famous names,
Patton, Disney and Marilyn Monroe.
Tiger Woods and Shirley Temple Black
London, Frost and Joe DiMaggio.
Statehood, September 9, 1850 the 31st state
Capital isSacramento
