America~COLORADO~by rldubour


Colorado means, “Colored Red”
And known as the Centennial State.
After viewing Pikes Peak, “America the Beautiful
Was written by, ~~ Katherine Lee Bates.

The oldest wooden merry-go-round,
Dates back to nineteen-hundred- and five.
The world’s highest suspension bridge,
To get over~~ some people refuse to drive

July fourth in eighteen-sixty-nine
World’s first rodeo, to ride those wild things!
John Henry “Doc Holliday” died on
November eight in Glenwood Springs.

In America, Colfax Avenue in Denver
Is the longest continuous street.
And Leadville is the highest city at
Ten-thousand, four hundred and thirty feet.

The state bird is the Prairie Lark Finch;
The flower is the Rocky Mountain Columbine.
The Post Office that’s in Loveland each year
Re-mails hundreds of thousand Valentines!

The Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep
And the Hairstreak Butterfly
Just two more symbols of this state
In case you’re asked, you can reply.

Pueblo~~ the only city in America where four
Recipients of the Metal of Honor are still living.
In eighteen-seventy-nine the last conflict
The Meeker Massacre was unforgiving.

Known as the “Mother of Rivers
Where most major rivers get their source.
Motto is: “Nothing without the Deity
Means personification of force.

A Georgian in eighteen-fifty-nine
By the name of John Gregory
Found the richest square mile on earth
The biggest Mother Load in history.

It’s time again for famous names
Like Carpenter, Allen and Elway
Fairbanks, Nighthorse, and Chaney
Whitman, Dempsey and Duray.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Statehood, August 1, 1876 the 38th state
Capital is Denver
