Implied textPoem: "The New Colossus," describing the Statue of Liberty, appears on a plaque
at the base of the statue. It ends with the statue herself speaking: Give me your tired,
your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your
teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the
golden door. " by Emma Lazarus.
