For You O Democracy by Walt Whitman - With Guest Ken Briggs

January 24, 2018

 


 

 

 

 

Why aren't people born in America a race, just as people born in Africa are a race?

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 necks, 

                   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.
