Invocation to Genius.

Genius awaken in this new-born land,
Hold o'er these climes thy sceptre of command;
Here wave thy banners, sound thy trump of Fame,
And give to Glory the Columbian name;
Drive darkness far before thy golden ray
And let us live beneath thy noon of day-- 390
Some native bard O kindle with thy fire !
And bid him pour the torrent of thy lyre,
Unfold thy visions to his searching mind,
Thy wreaths of laurel round his temples bind!
