FAIR daughter seated by Ohio's stream,|
First offspring of the East in virile days
The rugged West to win and then redeem,
May not our thought sound now a mother's theme,
Maternal throbs attune thy century's lays?
May vibrant memories of these years unite
To speak the kinship of our parted band
That reared thy radiant Commonwealth in light,
In love for law, for knowledge, freedom, right -
For all that chartered ground where Boston's children stand.
