A point of information... This book was translated as "A Fortnight in the Wilderness" and included as Appendix 2 in "Democracy In America: Historical-Critical Edition", edited by Eduardo Nolla.

We could’ve had us children, We could’ve had a home— But you thought not, and I thought not, And these nine years we roam.
