A Tramp across the Continent

Fletcher Lummis, Charles. A Tramp across the Continent. New York: C. Scribner’s Sons, 1892.

With no reason to be modest, Lummis called his "unpretentious" account of it "the wayside notes of a happy vagabonding."

Rest not
Life is sweeping by
go and dare before you die.
Something mighty and sublime,
leave behind to conquer time.
