Synopsis
Excerpt: ... stores-city of tall façades of marble and iron!   Proud and passionate city-mettlesome, mad, extravagant city!   Spring up, O city-not for peace alone, but be indeed yourself,             warlike!   Fear not-submit to no models but your own O city!   Behold me-incarnate me as I have incarnated you!   I have rejected nothing you offer'd me-whom you adopted I have             adopted,   Good or bad I never question you-I love all-I do not condemn any             thing,   I chant and celebrate all that is yours-yet peace no more,   In peace I chanted peace, but now the drum of war is mine,   War, red war is my song through your streets, O city!
