THE DREAMERS; A SONG OF .
By Berton Braley.
Thrilled withthe Spirit of romance
Which set their hearts aflame,
The brave adventurers of France
To this, our isthmus, came;
They dared the jungle and the sun,
The fever and the rains,
Their work, we know, was left un
done, The SOUL of it remains!
They dreamed brave dreams in Pan
ama, And mid their dreams they died,
But spite of failure, fault and flaw
We know how well they tried;
We know what priceless lives it cost
At Colon and Gatun,
We know success was only lost
Because they dreamed too soon!
So though they failed and failed
Through Fate and Circumstance,
I toast those doughty Gentlemen
Adventurers of France;
For if WE make their vision true
By steel and stone and steam,
THEY pointed out the work to do,
They weVe the first to dream!
