Freedom! beneath thy banner I was born.
O, let me share thy full and perfect life!
Teach me opinion’s slavery to scorn,
And to be free from passion’s bitter strife;

Free of the world, a self-dependent soul,
Nourished by lofty aims and genial truth,
And made more free by love’s serene control,
The spell of beauty and the hopes of youth:

The liberty of Nature let me know,
Caught from her mountains, groves, and crystal streams;
Her starry host, and sunset’s purple glow,
That woo the spirit with celestial dreams,

On fancy’s wing exultingly to soar,
Till life’s harsh fetters clog the heart no more!
