“Uncle Walt…”

Whoever you are! claim your own at any hazard!
These shows of the east and west are tame compared to you,
These immense meadows—these interminable rivers—you are immense and interminable as they,
These furies, elements, storms, motions of Nature, throes of apparent dissolution—you are he or she who is master or mistress over them, Master or mistress in your own right over Nature, elements, pain, passion, dissolution.
The hopples fall from your ankles—you find an unfailing sufficiency,
Old or young, male or female, rude, low, rejected by the rest, whatever you are promulges itself,
Through birth, life, death, burial, the means are provided, nothing is scanted,
Through angers, losses, ambition, ignorance, ennui, what you are picks its way.
(thanks par par)
