"A Thought of Columbus"
to exhibition object
(A word added yet to my song, far Discoverer, as ne'er before
sent back to son of earth--
If still thou hearest, hear me,
Voicing for once as here now--lands,
races, arts, bravas to thee,
O'er the long backward path to thee--one vast consensus, north, south, east,
Soul plaudits! memory acclamation!
One manifold, huge memory to thee! oceans and lands!
The modern world to thee and thought of thee!)
