“Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

A kind artist on Red Bubble sent me a b-mail and asked whether I had considered removing the very small helicopter that was in the sky (In the original). I hadn’t but said I would give it a try and see what I thought. Well I am posting this revised version and removing the former as I think this is a better work. Thanks:)
