For You O Democracy

by Walt Whitman

    Come, I will make the continent indissoluble,
    I will make the most splendid race the sun ever 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
            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.
