Rock Ledge Ranch Living History Museum [rockledgeranch.com]Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA 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! First three verses of “Pioneers, O Pioneers!” from Walt Whitman's book of poetry, Leaves of Grass.
