THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER (DEDICATED TO MISS ELLA F. KENNEDY), by            
First Line: In the minnesota north woods
Last Line: To promote the source of living.
Subject(s): Mississippi River; Rivers


In the Minnesota North Woods
Gushes forth the Father Water.
Rolling on through Lake Itasca,
Rushing on, forever flowing.
Carving ridges, cliffs, and gulleys,
Carrying with it silt and limestone;
To the great Atlantic Ocean.
Reservoir of all the waters.
Winding Mississippi River,
Leaping rocks, and hills, and ledges,
Into magic falls and rapids,
Where the white man gets the power
To promote the source of living.
