FOR YOU O DEMOCRACY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Come, I will make the continent indissoluble
Last Line: For you, for you I am trilling these songs.
Subject(s): Democracy; Freedom; Patriotism; Liberty


Come, I will make the continent indissoluble,
I will make the most splendid race the sun ever shone upon,
I will make divine magnetic lands,
With the love of comrades,
With the life-long love of comrades.

I will plant companionship thick as trees along all the
rivers of America, and along the shores of the great
lakes, and all over the prairies,
I will make inseparable cities with their arms about each
other's necks,
By the love of comrades,
By the manly love of comrades,
For you these from me, O Democracy, to serve you ma femme!
For you, for you I am trilling these songs.
