Walt Whitman - Kosmos.

WHO includes diversity, and is Nature, 
Who is the amplitude of the earth, and the coarseness and sexuality of the earth, and the
    great
	charity of the earth, and the equilibrium also, 
Who has not look’d forth from the windows, the eyes, for nothing, or whose brain held
	audience with messengers for nothing; 
Who contains believers and disbelievers—Who is the most majestic lover; 
Who holds duly his or her triune proportion of realism, spiritualism, and of the
    aesthetic, or
	intellectual,
Who, having consider’d the Body, finds all its organs and parts good; 
Who, out of the theory of the earth, and of his or her body, understands by subtle
    analogies
	all other theories, 
The theory of a city, a poem, and of the large politics of These States; 
Who believes not only in our globe, with its sun and moon, but in other globes, with their
    suns
	and moons; 
Who, constructing the house of himself or herself, not for a day, but for all time, sees
    races,
	eras, dates, generations,
The past, the future, dwelling there, like space, inseparable together.
