Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

174. To a Certain Cantatrice


HERE, take this gift! 
I was reserving it for some hero, speaker, or General, 
One who should serve the good old cause, the great Idea, the progress and freedom of the race; 
Some brave confronter of despots—some daring rebel; 
—But I see that what I was reserving, belongs to you just as much as to any.         5
