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

264. With All Thy Gifts


WITH all thy gifts, America, 
(Standing secure, rapidly tending, overlooking the world,) 
Power, wealth, extent, vouchsafed to thee—With these, and like of these, vouchsafed to thee, 
What if one gift thou lackest? (the ultimate human problem never solving;) 
The gift of Perfect Women fit for thee—What of that gift of gifts thou lackest?         5
The towering Feminine of thee? the beauty, health, completion, fit for thee? 
The Mothers fit for thee?
