From Leaves of Grass

Picture 5

 

“The sky continues beautiful,

The pleasure of men with women shall never be sated, nor the pleasure of women with men, nor the pleasure from poems,

The domestic joys, the daily housework or business, the building of houses—these are not phantasms—they have weight, form, location;

Farms, profits, crops, markets, wages, government, are none of them phantasms,

The difference between sin and goodness is no delusion,

The earth is not an echo—man and his life, and all the things of his life, are well-consider’d.

 

You are not thrown to the winds—you gather certainly and safely around yourself;

Yourself! Yourself! Yourself, forever and ever!”
