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

95. Thoughts


1

OF ownership—As if one fit to own things could not at pleasure enter upon all, and incorporate them into himself or herself.
 


2

Of waters, forests, hills;
 
Of the earth at large, whispering through medium of me; 
Of vista—Suppose some sight in arriere, through the formative chaos, presuming the growth, fulness, life, now attain’d on the journey; 
(But I see the road continued, and the journey ever continued;)         5
—Of what was once lacking on earth, and in due time has become supplied—And of what will yet be supplied, 
Because all I see and know, I believe to have purport in what will yet be supplied.
