Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

142. Delicate Cluster


DELICATE cluster! flag of teeming life! 
Covering all my lands! all my sea-shores lining! 
Flag of death! (how I watch’d you through the smoke of battle pressing! 
How I heard you flap and rustle, cloth defiant!) 
Flag cerulean! sunny flag! with the orbs of night dappled!         5
Ah my silvery beauty! ah my woolly white and crimson! 
Ah to sing the song of you, my matron mighty! 
My sacred one, my mother.
