Part of the cluster CALAMUS.



COME, I will make the continent indissoluble; I will make the most splendid race the sun ever yet  
 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, In the love of comrades, In the high-towering love of comrades.
