I am fevered with the sunset,
I am fretful with the bay,
For the wander-thirst is on me
And my soul is in Cathay.
- A Sea Gypsy [Traveling]
Make me over, Mother April,
When the sap begins to stir!
When thy flowery hand delivers
All the mountain-prisoned rivers,
And thy great heart beats and quivers,
To revive the days that were.

You to the left and I to the right,
For the ways of men must sever--
And it may be for a day and a night,
And it well may be forever.
But whether we meet or whether we part,
(For our ways are past our knowing)
A pledge from the heart to its fellow heart,
On the ways we all are going!
For we know not where we are going.
- At the Crossroads [Toasts]
The dawn is lonely for the sun,
And chill and drear;
The one lone star is pale and wan,
As one in fear.

Loose rein upon the neck of--and forth!

And you prate of the wealth of nations, as if it were bought and sold,
The wealth of nations is men, not silk and cotton and gold.

For 't is always fair weather
When good fellows get together
With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear.
- Spring [Hospitality]
For surely in the blind deep-buried roots
Of all men's souls to-day
A secret quiver shoots.
- Spring [Spring]
Ye who made war that your ships
Should lay to at the beck of no nation,
Make war now on Murder, that slips
The leash of her hounds of damnation;
Ye who remembered the Alamo,
Remember the Maine!
- The Word of the Lord from Havana [War]
I do not know beneath what sky
Nor on what seas shall be thy fate;
I only know it shall be high,
I only know it shall be great.
- Unmanifest Destiny [Fate]
