^Floating With The Tide I Yes. Floating ...
^ Floating with the tide i Yes . Floating with the Tide of Right and Virtue , TOMAHAWK pursues his course towards the Great Deep Sea of Truth . Afar off , afar off , perhaps never to be achieved , never to be arrived at , still the Canoe shall travel on towards the happy waters as it has for Summers twice-told , as it has for Winter twice seen .
Floating with the Tide , beside the dark dread banks of falsehood , the sharp strong rocks of slander , for ever moving , for ever conquering , the Canoe and its steerer float past the shores and shoals—shores full of danger and shoals yet more deceitful . Floating with the Tide o ' er the rapids of opinion , down along the Stream of Time . Light as the feather of a dove , strong as the eagle ' s claw . Onwards , onwards , for ever onwards . Firm
and fragile , with power and pleasure , sweet and mighty . Ever ready , ever wrathful with the wicked , the proud , and scornful . Strong and loving with the weak , and poor , and helpless . j Floating with the Tide away from sun and pleasant sunshine to the lands of mighty princes—princes great and very haughty . Away , away . Yes , far away from home . ! Floating with the Tide beside the Neva ' s best-loved city . By the palace of the Pope- i King—Alexander the Czar— -Czar of all the Russias—Mighty Sovereign full of weakness—worldly priestling nursing error !
