Walt Whitman - A Song.

1
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.
  
2
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. 
  
3
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.
