„The song seraphically free
Of taint of personality,
So pure that it salutes the suns
The voice of one for millions,
In whom the millions rejoice
For giving their one spirit voice.“

The Lark Ascending, l. 95-100.

„Almighty Freedom! give my venturous song
The force, the charm that to thy voice belong“

—  Joel Barlow, The Columbiad

Book I
The Columbiad (1807)
Contesto: Almighty Freedom! give my venturous song
The force, the charm that to thy voice belong;
Tis thine to shape my course, to light my way,
To nerve my country with the patriot lay,
To teach all men where all their interest lies,
How rulers may be just and nations wise:
Strong in thy strength I bend no suppliant knee,
Invoke no miracle, no Muse but thee.
