Pioneers!, O Pioneers!

Inspiration truly comes from endless places and this has to be the most powerful advertising campaign that I have ever seen. It sparks imagination, it summons pride, love and youthful exuberance. It summons me to it.

James

“Come my tan-faced children,
Follow well in order, get your weapons ready,
Have you your pistols? have you your sharp-edged axes?
Pioneers! O pioneers!

For we cannot tarry here,
We must march my darlings, we must bear the brunt of danger,
We the youthful sinewy races, all the rest on us depend,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

O you youths, Western youths,
So impatient, full of action, full of manly pride and friendship,
Plain I see you Western youths, see you tramping with the foremost,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

We debouch upon a newer mightier world, varied world,
Fresh and strong the world we seize, world of labor and the march,
Pioneers! O pioneers!”

Pioneers! O Pioneers!

By: Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
