NICHOLAS VACHEL LINDSAY
American poet
(1879 - 1931)

To live in mankind is far more than to live in a name.
      - [Mankind]

Booth led boldly with his bass drum
  (Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?)
    The Saints smiled gravely, and they said "He's come."
      (Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?)
      - General Booth Enters Heaven [Heaven]

Fools-to-free-the-world, they go,
  Primeval hearts from Buffalo.
    Red cataracts of France to-day
      Awake, three thousand miles away,
        An echo of Niagara
          The cataract of Niagara.
      - Niagara [Niagara]

Some day this old Broadway shall climb to the skies,
  As a ribbon of cloud on a soul-wind shall rise,
    And we shall be lifted, rejoicing by night,
      Till we join with the planets who choir their delight,
        The signs in the streets and the signs in the skies
          Shall make a new Zodiac, guiding the wise,
            And Broadway make one with that marvelous stair
              That is climbed by the rainbow-clad spirits of prayer.
      - Rhyme about an Electrical Advertising Sign
        [New York]

Then I saw the Congo, creeping through the black,
  Cutting through the jungle with a golden track.
      - The Congo [Congo River : Rivers]
