Two Americans Make

The only government is that which makes minute of individuals
What Best I See in Thee
O maidens and young men I love and that love me
Again the deathless grass, so noiseless soft and green
Massive, clean, bearded, tan-faced, handsome
Encompass worlds, but never try to encompass me
Resolute warlike One including and over all
I see African and Asiatic towns

Come I am determind to unbare this broad breast of mine, I have
All but the ties eternal, Time and Space
No guard can shut me off, no law prevent me
Soon shall these icy ligatures unbind and meltA little while
Mark, thy interminable farms, North, South
Answers for all, and send these signs
Know my omnivorous lines and must not write any less
Ebb, ocean of life, the flow will return,
