A carol closing sixty-nine -- a resume -- a repetition,
My lines in joy and hope continuing on the same,
Of ye, O God, Life, Nature, Freedom, Poetry;
Of you, my Land -- your rivers, prairies, States -- you,
mottled Flag I love,
Your aggregate retain'd entire -- Of north, south, east and
west, your items all;
Of me myself -- the jocund heart yet beating in my breast,
The body wreck'd, old, poor and paralyzed -- the strange
inertia falling pall-like round me,
The burning fires down in my sluggish blood not yet extinct,
The undiminish'd faith -- the groups of loving friends.
