… this principle,
– this gift of equality and identical in being,
this excellence, this intimate brilliance, this civic justice –
Where was she, who brought her to us?
… because open to the sublime song of reason and heart,
rushed and the ages of slavery and exile of body and soul,
Behold, the XXI arrives demanding ballot boxes, and votes, and scrutinies,
acts and proclamations, exact verdicts with which he exhales and lives in triumph
democracy and its virtue;
… time has expired and the citizen and redemptive fire demands its estate:
the universal being, his honor or guide, his beacon or civil light: republicanism;
not in vain – I go back and say – I am his paladin, his empire and king, his prince.
