AMERICA
SIDNEY LANIER

Long as thine art shall love true love,
Long as thy science truth shall know,
Long as thine eagle harms no dove,
Long as thy law by law shall grow,
s Long as thy God is God above,
Thy brother every man below,
So long, dear land of all my love,
Thy name shall shine, thy fame shall glow.

NOTES AND QUESTIONS
Biography. Sidney Lanier (1842-1881) was an American poet. Born in Georgia and writing about southern scenes, he has been called the poet of the South. He was very musical and could play on the guitar, banjo, violin, and flute. His books for boys are widely read, especially his Boys' King Arthur. He wrote "The Centennial Cantata" for the Centennial Celebration held at Philadelphia in 1876, from which these famous lines are taken.
Discussion. 1. How does the poet address his country? 2. How long does he say her "name shall shine" and her "fame shall glow"? 3.

How are our laws made, and how may they be changed? 5. What is meant by "thy God is God above"? 6. What can Americans do to show that they regard every man as a brother? 7.
