Columbia the Great and Glorious Bird
Fell to the Earth in the Bright early Light
With one final Gasp and Roar of Might
Then from her Nothing more was Heard!

A Loving Creator reached down to the Heroic Seven
Firmly grasping them with a Gentle Hand
He whisked them away from this Earthly Land
Now to live in Eternal Peace within His Kingdom of Heaven!
