Walt Whitman - Beginners.

HOW they are provided for upon the earth, (appearing at intervals;) 
How dear and dreadful they are to the earth; 
How they inure to themselves as much as to any—What a paradox appears their age; 
How people respond to them, yet know them not; 
How there is something relentless in their fate, all times;
How all times mischoose the objects of their adulation and reward, 
And how the same inexorable price must still be paid for the same great purchase.

I have a feeling Whitman is talking about infants?" our mixed reaction and feelings towards them, our inability to understand them and the price we pay to have them?"
