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

275. My Picture-Gallery

IN a little house keep I pictures suspended, it is not a fix’d house, 
It is round, it is only a few inches from one side to the other; 
Yet behold, it has room for all the shows of the world, all memories? 
Here the tableaus of life, and here the groupings of death; 
Here, do you know this? this is cicerone himself,         5
With finger rais’d he points to the prodigal pictures.
