Calamus 24

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.


I HEAR it is charged against me that I seek to destroy  
But really I am neither for nor against institutions, (What indeed have I in common with them?—Or  
 what with the destruction of them?)
  [ begin page 368 ]ppp.01500.376.jpg Only I will establish in the Mannahatta, and in every  
 city of These States, inland and seaboard,
And in the fields and woods, and above every keel  
 little or large, that dents the water,
Without edifices, or rules, or trustees, or any ar- 
The institution of the dear love of comrades.
