Calamus 33

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.


NO labor-saving machine, Nor discovery have I made, Nor will I be able to leave behind me any wealthy  
 bequest to found a hospital or library,
Nor reminiscence of any deed of courage, for America, Nor literary success, nor intellect—nor book for the  
Only these carols, vibrating through the air, I leave, For comrades and lovers.

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.
