Whip up, O Wind! off Eastern shore
Lift from sea dust the maverick
Franklin spirit; stir century encrusted
thinking about the New World;
Breathe inspiration into today’s righteous

Alaskan air streams chill Northwestern
minds, but drafts filtered over glacial fields
fuel pioneering imaginations that rest in
California’s gold-laden streams and Oregon’s
Klackamus tribal lands.

Rise to meet the day, O Wind! off
Express pony hooves. Let enlighted
Squalls lift, inflate the minds
of the people, leaders.

A new world breezes in.
