Walt Whitman - Lo! Victress on the Peaks.

LO! Victress on the peaks! 
Where thou, with mighty brow, regarding the world, 
(The world, O Libertad, that vainly conspired against thee;) 
Out of its countless beleaguering toils, after thwarting them all; 
Dominant, with the dazzling sun around thee,
Flauntest now unharm’d, in immortal soundness and bloom—lo! in these hours
No poem proud, I, chanting, bring to thee—nor mastery’s rapturous verse; 
But a book, containing night’s darkness, and blood-dripping wounds, 
And psalms of the dead.
