  • You by my charm I invoke.
  • Not for the bards of the past, not to invoke them have I launch’d you forth, Not to call even those lofty bards here by Ontario’s shores, Have I sung so capricious and loud my savage song.
  • Bards for my own land only I invoke, (For the war the war is over, the field is clear’d,) Till they strike up marches henceforth triumphant and onward, To cheer O Mother your boundless expectant soul.
  • …happiness nor wealth, And yet the pulse of every heart and life throughout the world incessantly, Which you and I and all pursuing ever ever miss, Open but still a secret, the real of the real, an illusion, Costless, vouchsafed to each, yet never man the owner, Which poets vainly seek to put in rhyme, historians in prose, Which sculptor never chisel’d yet, nor painter painted, Which vocalist never sung, nor orator nor actor ever utter’d, Invoking here and now I challenge for my song.
