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

62. No Labor-Saving Machine


NO labor-saving machine, 
Nor discovery have I made; 
Nor will I be able to leave behind me any wealthy bequest to found a hospital or library, 
Nor reminiscence of any deed of courage, for America, 
Nor literary success, nor intellect—nor book for the book-shelf;         5
Only a few carols, vibrating through the air, I leave, 
For comrades and lovers.
